That's right. The problem is that configure doesn't tell me (to my
knowledge) whether the user did define it, or whether configure is just
telling you the default.
Now, the configure script tries to figure out whether the user did
define it by looking at the symptoms - namely if he set something other
than the problem. Now, what you did just happens to be the default:
./configure --prefix=/usr --infodir=/usr/share/info
I.e. by the time out code in configure.ac ends up looking at $infodir,
it looks the same as if you hadn't set it. Thus, changing the "default"
configure.ac assumes would fix it for you but break it for everybody
I was banging my head against it at the time, and still don't know a
satisfactory solution. Maybe we should install into
/usr/share/info/xemacs-<VERSION> but directly into /usr/share/info, just
like everybody else.
