In the implementation I'm pursuing, instead of setting INFO_FILES in
each package Makefile, we just specify which directories contain the
installed info files.  By default, this would be ${PREFIX}/${PKGINFODIR}
(/usr/pkg/info), but would be overridable by a package Makefile to be
a list of other directories instead, e.g. ${PREFIX}/gdbada/${PKGINFODIR}.
