Of course I have a /sbin/install-info too. But when doing staged install
as a user I don't have /sbin in my path so /sbin/install-info fails.
With the patch, /sbin/install-info is only used if functionning.

Are you building the rpm as root? Anyway it would be better to remove it
in %install, instead of distributing it something along
rm -f $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_infodir}/dir
Otherwise it will overwrite the existing dir file (or conflict).

With my patch they are not exported, only distributed, as they are in 
noinst_HEADERS, together with the other mozilla include files.
