texinfo-3.12f (from Starbuck) needs to depend on gzip.

texinfo uses gzip, and many packages call makeinfo in the
postinstall scripts, which fails if they are installed
before before gzip is installed (see the install.log from
any Starbuck install for >20 examples of the failure).
Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-03-25 16:44:59 EST
the problem is that gzip requires texinfo in turn (it requires
install-info), whicle install-info will require gzip, which is a nasty
dependency loop. We are deliberately ignoring thsi dependency now and
hanling it differently in the install.

Problems installing should be fixed in more recent snapshots
