Well just to give some examples, I have downloaded the info file of Bash and that of Texinfo on my machine and I have installed them with install-info by hand. I also installed all the manuals that were coming with the MinGW tool-chain with install-info. I am also writing myself 3 manuals for emacs extension packages (one is for emacs-template which is still under discussion with Christoph Wedler, and the two other are for extension packages I am developping myself), and I had also to install them with install-info.
I recognize that it is not that often, but it happens...

There are a number of options to call install-info, like for any other commands. But this is also true for any of the commands that are invoked by means of the dired-x default shell guess. I think that the shape
install-info file.info dir
is the most common... but you should cross check this with Karl Berry...
