Note, I had dpkg installed on my box. dpkg seems to install it's own
'install-info' into /usr/sbin. Check which install-info you are using:

poseidon ~ # gaze from $(which install-info)
texinfo-4.8a:/usr/bin/install-info

and not (or whatever other spell):

poseidon ~ # gaze from $(which install-info)
dpkg-1.13.24:/usr/sbin/install-info

here's the usage and version for texinfo's install-info:

poseidon ~ # install-info --help
Usage: install-info [OPTION]... [INFO-FILE [DIR-FILE]]

Install or delete dir entries from INFO-FILE in the Info directory file
DIR-FILE.

Options:
 --delete          delete existing entries for INFO-FILE from DIR-FILE;
                     don't insert any new entries.
 --dir-file=NAME   specify file name of Info directory file.
                     This is equivalent to using the DIR-FILE argument.
 --entry=TEXT      insert TEXT as an Info directory entry.
                     TEXT should have the form of an Info menu item line
                     plus zero or more extra lines starting with whitespace.
                     If you specify more than one entry, they are all added.
                     If you don't specify any entries, they are determined
                     from information in the Info file itself.
 --help            display this help and exit.
 --info-file=FILE  specify Info file to install in the directory.
                     This is equivalent to using the INFO-FILE argument.
 --info-dir=DIR    same as --dir-file=DIR/dir.
 --item=TEXT       same as --entry TEXT.
                     An Info directory entry is actually a menu item.
 --quiet           suppress warnings.
 --remove          same as --delete.
 --section=SEC     put this file's entries in section SEC of the directory.
                     If you specify more than one section, all the entries
                     are added in each of the sections.
                     If you don't specify any sections, they are determined
                     from information in the Info file itself.
 --version         display version information and exit.
