Hi Bill,
I will look into why it's still not done automatically. For now you can
do a few things:
- find where your info directory is (in emacs do "C-h i" and then
  "C-x C-f", that should do). Typically that is /usr/share/info.
- Then in your mcsim/doc directory do "makeinfo mcsim.texinfo" if you
  have not done it already
- Then "sudo install-info /usr/share/info/dir" (the dir file
  in your info directory.

That will make a permanent link to the file in the info dir
file. Now whenever you type "info mcsim" that should bring you there, or
if you type just "info" mcsim will appear in the GNU Packages section.

Rather than leaving in mcsim/doc you may want to sudo copy it
to the info directory and do sudo install-info in that directory.

For emacs: I'm not using info from there, so I'm not the best adviser,
but if you do "C-u C-h i" it will ask you which info file to read. If
you are already in info (C-h i) it will propose the system info
directory. So if you have copied there that would be quick.
There is also a couple of emacs variables you can set to find it more

Best regards
