Is what you're talking about refer especially to linux?

Because I have no $INFOPATH, nor any dir44 files, yet info seems to work ok.

Maybe because I myself downloaded and compiled (gnu) emacs, on my
sunblade-100 solaris-9 system?

And, by hand I made 

Info-default-directory-list's value is 
("/big7/from_netcom-dir4/sources2-stuff/cvs-emacs--6apr05/info/" 
"/opt/csw/info/" "/opt/sfw/info/" "/usr/local/info/" 
"/ROOT-FOR--me-FIRST-in-PATH-tree/info" 
"/big5/david3/from_netcom-dir1/emacs-stuff/elisp-manual-21-2.8/" 
"/david3/from_netcom-dir2/perl-stuff/perl-info.5.004/info/" 
"/myexternals/opt/gnu/diffutils-2.7/info/" 
"/big5/david3/from_netcom-dir1/emacs-stuff/emacs-lisp-intro-2.04/" 
"/opt/sfw/lib/xemacs-21.1.14/info/" "/opt/csw/info/" "/usr/local/info/" 
"/usr/local/share/info/" "/usr/local/gnu/info/" "/usr/local/gnu/lib/info/" 
"/usr/local/gnu/lib/emacs/info/" "/usr/local/emacs/info/" 
"/usr/local/lib/info/" "/usr/local/lib/emacs/info/")



Puzzled about INFOPATH and dir44-files.
