When an info file is installed, an entry is added to the dir file in
$INFODIR (in your case it is /opt/share/info) and the info file itself
is placed in the same directory (usually after gzipping).

How do you install the info file, do you run install-info? Usually the
Makefile should have a rule like install-info. So you could install the
info files like this:

$ make install-info

If that doesn't work, you can try installing by hand like this:

$ install-info --infodir=/opt/share/info /path/to/

But please backup before you try this as I have not tried this myself.
