This should save you some time:

These work without extra effort:
automake, bash, fileutils, gettext, grep, libtool, make, sed, sh-utils,
tar, texinfo, textutils

The following are installed before texinfo:
bison, diffutils, ed, findutils, gcc, m4

Their info can be installed from outside chroot:
install-info $LFS/usr/share/info/????.info $LFS/usr/share/info/dir

Some packages require an info directory entry eg:
install-info -e\
  "* diff: (diff).               Output differences between files"\
  $LFS/usr/share/info/ $LFS/usr/share/info/dir

These add stuff to the /usr/share/info directory, but not to
/usr/share/info/dir: -s "GNU admin" -s "GNU admin" -e\
"* diff: (diff).                                Output differences between files" -s Libraries -e\
"* ed: (ed)ed invocation.                       line-oriented text editor" # This worked after added -e 
"* gzip: (gzip).                                compress or expand files"

These did not do anything with info, I do not know if
they should:

bin86, bzip2, console-data, console-tools, file, flex, groff,, less, lilo, man, man-pages, mawk, modutils, ncurses,
netkit-base, net-tools, patch, perl, procinfo, procps, psmisc,
shadow, sysklogd, sysvinit

I have read info pages about perl and lilo

I do not have vim on my system, so that needs checking

Serguei Ostrovskii told us about binutils:
  make info
  make install-info

Any any one know why this took so long with kernel 2.4.0?
64 octets from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=12460.0 ms
wrong data byte #0 should be 0xa9 but was 0x9d9d 3e bf 39 29 98 2 0
        <8 to 2f in hex>
64 octets from icmp_seq=5 ttl=255 time=0.0 ms my isp via ppp this time
kernel 2.2.? works fine
