It's not critical, but it is puzzling.

Did the previous instructions work OK?

1. gunzip -v /usr/share/info/libext2fs.info.gz
2, install-info --dir-file=/usr/share/info/dir \

3. makeinfo -o      doc/com_err.info ../lib/et/com_err.texinfo
4. install -v -m644 doc/com_err.info /usr/share/info
5, install-info --dir-file=/usr/share/info/dir \

Note that 2 is almost identical to 5.

The only thing that install-info does is update the dir file in
