Description

I tried to bring up the info file for gmp; it's not in the index. The info files are in two directories, /usr/share/info (for programs in world) and /usr/pkg/info (for programs in packages), each with its own dir file, so "info foo" doesn't work if foo is installed from a package.

Pierre,

can you please update info with either latest master or 3.0 by make/make install in gnu/usr.bin/texinfo and then try again?

I had to build the whole world, but it does work. "info gmp" now brings up the info page of gmp.
