Because I set $TEXDIR to /usr/share (in order to get rid of this
doubled texmf/, see previous thread; granted, I was misguided), I
lost all my man and info pages. In file common.sh in line 438 it
rm -f `ls $TEXDIR/info`; ln -s $TEXDIR/info/*info* .
I suspect that this line caused (part of) the desaster. Do you
think it is sensible and possible to avoid the first part of that
line? I find it pretty dangerous.
