    yes, indeed. but look at the code; by putting the root
    as /usr/share _and_ selecting symlinks, Torsten has
    entered a twilight world I do not see quite how to get
    out of.

Yes, but no matter what, it is wrong to remove every info/man page on
the system.

How about this:

for f in $TEXDIR/info/*info*; do
  base=`basename $f`
  rm -f $base
  ln -s $f .

Then at least only those files that get replaced are removed.
