[Ecls-list] FreeBSD port - again

in order to properly fit into the FreeBSD ports/ tree, ECL should use install-info to install info files.

To make this work without breaking something two things ought to be changed:

1. The Makefile in src/doc must be told to use this. This is quite trivial (ok, one should use install-info --delete in uninstall, too, but the ports system does not use uninstall anyway)

diff -u -r1.20 Makefile.in
--- Makefile.in 8 Dec 2003 09:41:38 -0000       1.20
+++ Makefile.in 29 Jan 2004 23:43:10 -0000

        if [ -f user.html ]; then \
          $(INSTALL_DATA) $$i $(prefix)/doc/; \
        else \

2. configure has to have some standard value for @INSTALL_INFO at . Ideally this would be @INSTALL_DATA@, so there is no breakage for anyone. This is not as trivial and I have no clue how to accomplish this.

Btw, the FreeBSD port is (except the info stuff) complete and ready for submission.
