Of course it wants to remove install-info, that is because I told it to.

However install-info isn't essential, so why is it saying otherwise?

Ok, so if I understand correctly, I can ignore these warnings, they don't matter?

install-info --info-dir='/build/user-heimdal_1.2.e1.dfsg.1-4-amd64-fOXbEk/heimdal-1.2.e1.dfsg.1/debian/tmp//usr/share/info' '/build/user-heimdal_1.2.e1.dfsg.1-4-amd64-fOXbEk/heimdal-1.2.e1.dfsg.1/debian/tmp//usr/share/info/heimdal.info'
install-info: warning: nothing done since /usr/bin/install-info doesn't exist,
install-info: warning: you might want to install an info-browser package.
install-info --info-dir='/build/user-heimdal_1.2.e1.dfsg.1-4-amd64-fOXbEk/heimdal-1.2.e1.dfsg.1/debian/tmp//usr/share/info' '/build/user-heimdal_1.2.e1.dfsg.1-4-amd64-fOXbEk/heimdal-1.2.e1.dfsg.1/debian/tmp//usr/share/info/hx509.info'
install-info: warning: nothing done since /usr/bin/install-info doesn't exist,
install-info: warning: you might want to install an info-browser package.

On the assumption I got this correct, I will change the "rm" statement to "rm
-f". I assumed install-info did more them just creating the unwanted
/usr/share/info/dir file.

Yes.

It does nothing else indeed:

DESCRIPTION
Add or remove entries in INFO-FILE from the Info directory DIR-FILE.
