JDEE on SuSE Linux 8.0

I'm quite new to Emacs and I'd like to install the package JDEE. In
order to so I've to install elib (I downloaded it from 

Now I encounter when installing elib on Linux SuSE Personal 8.0. Has
anyone of you had the same problems ?

I changed the Makefile as follows:

# ================================================================
# Change the following to reflect the situation at your site:

prefix = /usr
## was before: prefix = /usr/local
datadir = $(prefix)/share
locallisppath = $(datadir)/emacs/21.1/lisp
# This will fail if locallisppath is anything but a single directory.
# That is all right, since that is the default behaviour of Emacs;
# that know how to change it, should know how to change this file.
# if this is accepted into GNU Emacs, the files should end up inside
# the normal lisp directory.
ELIBDIR = $(locallisppath)/elib
infodir = $(prefix)/share/info

EMACS = emacs
MAKEINFO = makeinfo
TEXI2DVI = texi2dvi
SHELL = /bin/sh

# ================================================================
# You shouldn't change anything below this line.

After `make install' (typed in as root) these errors occur:

emacs -batch -l elib-compile-all.el -f compile-elib
mkdir /usr/share/emacs/21.1/lisp/elib
cp* /usr/share/info
if /bin/sh -c 'install-info --version' \
        >/dev/null 2>&1; then \
        install-info --infodir=/usr/share/info; \
else true; fi
install-info: Unbekannte Option »--infodir=/usr/share/info«
»install-info --help« gibt weitere Informationen.
make: *** [install-info] Fehler 1

I don't understand anything of this error. What does it mean ?

Maybe there's a mistake in my Makefile; what locallisppath do I have
to choose ? On my system emacs is installed as follows:
       |                                      |
   site-lisp             21.1
                 |         |     |        |
                          etc   leim  lisp  site-lisp
(etc, leim, lisp and site-lisp are in the directory 21.1)
        /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp contains about 20 el and elc files
        /usr/share/emacs/21.1/lisp contains lots of el and elc files
and several directories (f.e. calendar, gnus)
        /usr/share/emacs/21.1/site-lisp contains the file subdirs.el
and the directory term

I chose /usr/share/emacs/21.1/lisp as the locallisppath. Is this
correct ?

Or have I done any other mistakes ?

Thanks in advance !
