>From install-info.c:

  desc = open (dirfile, O_RDONLY);
  if (desc < 0 && errno == ENOENT)
    {
      FILE *f;
      char *readerr = strerror (errno);
      close (desc);
      f = fopen (dirfile, "w");
      if (f)
        {
          fprintf (f, _("This is the file .../info/dir, which contains the\n\
topmost node of the Info hierarchy, called (dir)Top.\n\
The first time you invoke Info you start off looking at this node.\n\
%c\n\
%s\tThis is the top of the INFO tree\n\
\n\
[...]

As you probably know, text that is in _() will be replaced by gettext
with its localized translation.
