Not exactly - change the ???? to the package name eg:

[richard at urusai tasks]# grep install-info *
autoconf:    install-info -s "GNU admin" $LFS/usr/share/info/\
autoconf:    install-info -s "GNU admin" $LFS/usr/share/info/\
binutils:       su $install_user -c "make install-info"
bison:    install-info $LFS/usr/share/info/ $LFS/usr/share/info/dir
diffutils:      install-info -e\
e2fsprogs:    install-info -s "Libraries" $LFS/usr/share/info/\
ed:    install-info -e\
findutils:      su $install_user -c "make install-info"
findutils:    install-info $LFS/usr/share/info/ $LFS/usr/share/info/dir
gcc:      install-info $LFS/usr/share/info/   $LFS/usr/share/info/dir
gzip:    install-info -e\
m4:    install-info $LFS/usr/share/info/ $LFS/usr/share/info/dir
tar:    install-info $LFS/usr/share/info/ $LFS/usr/share/info/dir
util-linux:    install-info $LFS/usr/share/info/ $LFS/usr/share/info/dir
wget:    install-info -e\

The order that the packages gets installed has changed, so different ones
need help installing their info. I have not yet modified my scripts to
match so my old e-mail, and the above are no longer good lists.


su $install_user & su $build_user are taking far more work than I expected,
so it my be some time before I deal with info.
