Yes.  But it seems TeXlive installs its own version of info.  And it is
the TeXlive installer which creates those symlinks.

Well, this is of course the right answer.  There is a version of TL2008
available from
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Publishing/openSUSE_11.1, but
after installing this, I am unable to use the tlmgr, which makes this
unusable for me.  Hm, I wonder where I can ask for this?  Ah, here:
