Re: minor install nit

Actually this has been _caused_ by those recent changes. Probably whoever
did those changes has a more current install-info than both Nathan and

  markab[157]:~% install-info --version
  GNU install-info (Texinfo 3.9) 1.2

In the meantime, Dave Love has made the corresponding commands
``fail-safe'', as I just noticed, so now you only get

  install-info: No such file or directory for /sw/swtest/egcs/info/dir
  install-info: No such file or directory for /sw/swtest/egcs/info/dir
  gmake[1]: [install-info] Error 1 (ignored)

In any case, my patch below is a cleaner solution in that it prevents
the errors instead of simply ignoring them.
