No I can't provide any patch that works with all distros.  I don't have 
all distros available to me; not all Linux distros are accessible for 
screen reader users either.  I use screen reading software just to use a 
computer and I don't have all distros even under the category of distros 
that are accessible yet.

To use org-mode default uncomment /usr/local as prefix for all systems 
that put emacs stuff or some emacs stuff under /usr/local.  For 
Slackware and Debian though, /usr/local isn't in the load-paths.  The 
install-info part of the patch was using debian's install-info program 
all along and that was apparently depricated in favor of ginstall-info.  
That change will effect other distros into the future as they update 
their packages.  The org-mode default would be to uncomment install-info 
choice but debian squeeze needs ginstall-info uncommented.  There's 
another reason I can't provide better patches.  The Makefile structure 
itself.  I wrote code earlier which tested if [ -r /etc/debian_version 
]; then and took action if that was true but putting it into the 
variables section of the Make file and running make caused make to freak 
out on me with the complaint that commands were in the variables 
section.  Apparently Makefile structure and COBOL share some 
similarities and not the good ones.
