update-info-dir.sh doesn't use makeinfo. Besides, postinstall scripts
should not rely on the path containing /bin -- they should use explicit
paths (or else set the PATH themselves). Plus, I believe setup prepends
/bin to the PATH before running the scripts.
post-texmf.sh regenerates all of the binary LaTeX format files -- it's
*supposed* to take a long time, especially with slower disks. Perhaps it
should be renamed to "post-texmf-THIS-MAY-TAKE-A-WHILE.sh" (so people at
least get a visual clue in setup)? :-)

Well, let's hope this doesn't take the OP off on a tangent and make him
forget to actually post some useful output. :-)
