portlint seems to have some false positive on install-info which give a FATAL error.


$ cd /usr/ports/devel/monotone
$ portlint
WARN: Makefile: [35]: possible direct use of command "rmdir" found. use ${RMDIR} instead.
WARN: Makefile: only one MASTER_SITE configured.  Consider adding additional mirrors.
FATAL: Makefile: install-info is automatically run when INFO is defined.
1 fatal error and 2 warnings found.

In fact "install-info" is only referred in that Makefile as part of a sed command.
