Thanks for your response.  As it happens, I played with it this morning
and tried updating the dir file.  That fixed it.  (Coincidently, I
finished just about the time that your email arrive!)

For the archives, the following seemed to fix the problem for me.  I
ignore the error messages.

	/> rm /usr/share/info/dir
	/> /bin/find /usr -iname \*.info\* | sed -e 's,^,install-info
--dir-file=/usr/share/info/dir --info-file=,' | sh -s

Thanks again for your response,

- Barry
