Re: report after installing zsh-4.3.2

I wrote
on Mac OS X 10.3.9, installation worked well except for error messages in
make install.info

I assume that your version of install-info doesn't understand the
--version option?

Apparently it does:

usage: install-info [--version] [--help] [--debug] [--maxwidth=nnn]
             [--section regexp title] [--infodir=xxx] [--align=nnn]

Here is a complete output (of a second run):

    sed '/^@setfilename/s|zsh|zsh|' \

        /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 $file /usr/local/info || exit 1; \
    done \
); then \
    if /bin/sh -c 'install-info --version' >/dev/null 2>&1; then \
