Time to make your own .info file :) It's very easy in this case, since
you can copy one that's there already and modify it as needed.  Put it
in the local tree, so fink knows it's not part of its distribution.

Right, but this is completely standalone, it doesn't depend on
anything at all other than what comes with the osx developer tools --
not on fink and not on anything else you might happen to have in

If you want option to be meta, you need one.  The standard osx X11 key
mapping makes command/apple act as meta and option/alt act as alt.

Right, ok, but that's with all the lisp and info files etc.  You'll
see exactly the same thing with the X11 build, except those parts will
be under /usr/local.

This works ok for me.

If you leave them wherever the install step puts them, it should work.
With the carbon emacs you should also be able to copy them into the
application bundle (as you've apparently done).  I don't do this
myself, but I did try it once, some time ago, and it seemed to work

What symptom are you seeing -- 'meta-x info' shows nothing?
