  But what has this got to do with the location of the info directory?
The make rules invoke install-info with --info-dir=${PREFIX}/info, so the
location of the installed files is properly controlled regardless of where
the install-info executable is found.  Or is there something more to the
objection than is stated above?

  (And besides, the info directory is _not_ always ${LOCALBASE}/info, it's
${PREFIX}/info, which causes problems when PREFIX=X11BASE, as reported in
PR pkg/5319.)
