    <para os="g">The Info documentation system uses a plain text file to hold
    its list of menu entries. The file is located at
    <filename>/usr/share/info/dir</filename>. Unfortunately, due to occasional
    problems in the Makefiles of various packages, it can sometimes get out of
    sync with the info pages installed on the system. If the
    <filename>/usr/share/info/dir</filename> file ever needs to be recreated,
    the following optional commands will accomplish the task:</para>

<screen os="h" role="nodump"><userinput>cd ${CLFS}/usr/share/info
rm dir
for f in *
do install-info ${f} dir 2&gt;/dev/null
done</userinput></screen>
