I guess I found the problem:

chris at skull:~$ which install-info

But I know that `install-info' resides in /usr/sbin/. The
install-info that's found by which belongs to teTeX-3.0 (installed
from source):

chris at skull:~$ ls -l `which install-info`
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 33 2005-08-07 13:30
/usr/local/bin/install-info -> /usr/local/teTeX/bin/install-info

It's the order of PATH that calls /usr/local/bin/install-info
instead of /usr/sbin/install-info. I guess that's a severe problem.
Would it be reasonable to hardcode /usr/sbin/install-info in the
prerem and postinst scripts?
