Oh, I see.  I didn't think you meant the Emacs menu menu, but a menu in
the Info buffer.  :-)

Let's see...  Yes, that menu item should be dimmed.

Basically, Info calls

(Info-find-node "dir" "*TOC*")

which then fails.  Looking at that code, it's quite long and convoluted,
and calling that just to gray out the menu item is probably not a good
idea.  Does anybody know of a quick shortcut to determine whether the
TOC isn't available?  I'm quite unfamiliar with the Info code.
