I'm trying to patch the readline port to support READLINE_OVERWRITE_BASE as suggested by Edwin. im running into a bit of a snag with info files. Here is what I have in the Makefile

PREFIX= /usr
CONFIGURE_ARGS= --mandir=${MANPREFIX}/man --infodir=${INFOPREFIX}/info

the correct location for info files should be /usr/share/info (am I wrong?) but when i do a make install for this port I get the following errors:

ls: /usr/info/readline.info*: No such file or directory
ls: /usr/info/rluserman.info*: No such file or directory
ls: /usr/info/history.info*: No such file or directory

After reading through bsd.port.mk I found this:

.for i in ${INFO}
@${ECHO_CMD} "@unexec install-info --delete %D/info/$i.info %D/info/dir" \
@${LS} ${PREFIX}/info/$i.info* | ${SED} -e s:${PREFIX}/::g >> ${TMPPLIST}
@${ECHO_CMD} "@exec install-info %D/info/$i.info %D/info/dir" \

note the line starting with @${LS} it looks it PREFIX/info. which is my case would be /usr/info (which is wrong) is there any reason this shouldnt be something like ${INFOPREFIX} instead of ${PREFIX}? where INFOPREFIX=${PREFIX}/info
This would allow for ports to set the variable without having to write a custom installation script for allow for /usr/share/info. any ideas? Thanks
