Hi Michael-

Here's the output of my FTH "make install" where install-info quits and
kills the rest of the make:

makeinfo ${FTH_MAKEINFO_OPTIONS} fth.texi
info_file=`basename ./fth.info`; \
if test ! -f ${info_file}; then info_file=./fth.info; fi; \
list=`echo ${info_file}*`; \
for f in ${list}; do \
    ff=`basename ${f}`; \
    /usr/bin/install -c -m 0644 ${f} /usr/local/share/info/${ff}; \
done ; \
install-info --info-dir=/usr/local/share/info --info-file=${info_file}

Looks like the variable ${info_file} isn't being set to the correct

Best, Charles
