Description of problem:
There are no entries in /usr/share/info/dir for the .info files included in 'guile-devel':
$ grep -Ei 'guile|goop' /usr/share/info/dir
The 'guile-devel' RPM package file should include post-installation code that updates /usr/share/info/dir.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q --scripts guile-devel
2. There is no output from the previous command
3. Contrast this with, for example, the 'coreutils' RPM package:
rpm -q --scripts coreutils
Actual Results: There is no output from the '--scripts' query to the 'guile-devel' RPM package, while the the same query to the 'coreutils' RPM package lists the shell scriptlet that is run during post-installation, which adds the entries for 'coreutils' to /usr/share/info/dir.
Expected Results: A post-install scriptlet should be run during installation of the 'guile-devel' RPM package which updates /usr/share/info/dir to include entries for 'Guile Reference', 'Guile Tutorial', and 'GOOPS'.
