What does your `install-info' return for the `--version' option?
I got the following in the RHL9 system:

% install-info --version| sed 1q
install-info (GNU texinfo) 4.3d

It doesn't violate the `fgrep -s -v -i debian' filter and is
resulted true.  That program was copied from Gnus.  I've never
heard such a problem so far in both emacs-w3m and Gnus communities.
