OK, I tried your suggest and it appears to have worked. The build exited 
with this message:

install-info --quiet /usr/local/info/vcd-info.info /usr/local/info/dir
install-info: menu item `vcd-info' already exists, for file `vcdimager'
*** Error code 1 (continuing)

`install' not remade because of errors.

However, it does seem to have worked. I would have thought that the port 
maintainer would have foreseen this predicament and taken steps to 
alleviate it however.
