Description Ville Skyttä 2006-12-12 22:26:54 UTC
octave's install-info invocations are not failsafe against excludedocs or
read-only-netsharedpath-/usr/share installations; appending "|| :" to the
invocations in %post and %preun would fix it.

Additionally, install-info works on plain *.info too, no need to explicitly
specify the .gz extension if you like.

This has been fixed in CVS and will be in the next release, but I'm not going to
do a new build just for it.
