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 
"/opt/csw/info/" "/opt/sfw/info/" "/usr/local/info/" 
"/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.
