Debian has its own install-info.  It writes the right dir entries, it
seems, but it /additionally/ references /var/backups.

The Debian folk say that their install-info does exactly what Debian
needs.  But I'm afraid it doesn't do what I need.  I'd be happy about
a regular install-info as distributed with GNU Texinfo.  But that
will never happen (I mean they never will distribute it), I'm afraid.
