I usually run a script like the following after installing packages:
  cd /usr/local/share/info	# or wherever your info directory is
  for i in *info*; do
    install-info $i dir

Assuming of course that you have install-info (from makeinfo) installed.

There's probably a better way to handle this, but this works for me. 
Some of the packages are known to have buggy *.info files that causes
those to be left out of the dir file however.
