This is confusing, all right — here's what the system really looks like:
/usr/bin/install-info is a wrapper script that calls
/usr/bin/ginstall-info; /usr/sbin/install-info is an entirely different
program, not a wrapper.

No can do, sorry.  The only Debian system I have access to is a server
that only has a minimal system installed.  However, as explained
previously, the reason for org-mode make breaking is that while running
as root make will find /usr/sbin/install-info first.  There really is no
good reason for root to be installing user-mode programs with any "sbin"
in path, but it's hard to unwind these decisions that have become part
of the "culture" of certain distributions.
