We do this purely for historical reasons.
The internal Cygnus tree always used an explicit `install-info';
`install' didn't install the info pages.
This convention predates my arrival at Cygnus. However I imagine it
was a lame attempt to implement something like the
libjava follows this because it was initially written internally. It
didn't get released until relatively late in its existence.
I don't think we need to keep doing this. I think the whole gcc tree
should instead follow the GNU coding standards.

Unfortunately the situation here is a bit confused.
We currently use a mildly hacked automake.
You can ignore the errors if you look at the changes to Makefile.in to
verify that they are appropriately small.
I think this patch is ok. If you can commit it, please do. Otherwise
tell me and I will sometime.
