With a for loop; automake uses this to uninstall info
files (from lib/am/texinfos.am in the Automake package
- I only strip the DJGPP stuff):

        @list='$(INFO_DEPS)'; \
        for file in $$list; do \
          relfile=`echo "$$file" | sed 's|^.*/||'`; \
          (if cd "$(DESTDIR)$(infodir)"; then \
             rm -f $$relfile $$relfile-[0-9]
$$relfile-[0-9][0-9]; \
           else :; fi); \

I did not think about all the details yet,
but it should be possible to scan the "Indirect"
section in the main info file, and read the rest of
the info files from there.
The program should be put in the texinfo package under
utils I think. However, maybe that regex is safe

I forward this to address@hidden .
