It's ok. Even I did not have confidence whether this bug is only for
*BSD, or more general. Whenever I found a bug for a port, I compare
it with RH8.0 or FC3, and this time generating info files are ok on
RH8.0 and I guess it should be *BSD specific.

I then have to check why I and Kaz have different result on RH8.0.

Then, I'd like not to simply put info files into CVS, and try to find
better solution. I think Classpath's people's philosophy is practical
from the point of consistency.
