Im not sure they are "broken" in the purest sense, however I waited
over 2 hours for the script to finish.  It never did.  The
script seems simple:


if [ -f /usr/bin/texhash ]
/usr/bin/install-info --dir-file=/usr/share/info/dir

The first if statement should be false since I never found the texhash
file in the /usr/bin or /bin directory.  Im assuming something is
wrong with the final line.
