There doesn't seem to be a way to do that.  The names of DIR files are
hardwired into info.el: Emacs looks for `dir', `DIR', `dir.info', and
`DIR.INFO', in that order, in each Info directory.

The names are hardwired because the Texinfo package never generates
DIR files under any other name.

Why do you need that?  What is the real problem behind your request?
