I don't think such installations exist in practice, but if they do,
they already have a problem -- the one which started this thread.

I don't think we should fail to DTRT just because some installation
somewhere might have a botched info/dir file.

If that's not acceptable, I think Ulrich's original suggestion and
patch is the way to go.
