Yeah, the filename rules are a bit weird.  Info files may be split into
foo, foo-1, foo-2 and so on, and only the non-suffixed of them should be
fed to install-info.  Plus, taking the compression suffix into account,
plus, there may be non-info files in the info dirs as well, see
/usr/share/info/libidn-components.png.  Update-info-dir.sh ignores the
latter, but the --quite option suppresses any errors.
