SUN Solaris 7
On my system, GNU make is installed as 'gmake' in order to preserve the standard Sun 'make'. Doing a 'gmake install', the following results:

gmake[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/gnats-800/gnats/doc'
for i in** ; do \
        ./../install-sh -c -m 644 $i /info/$i ; \
if [ -x "/usr/local/bin/install-info" ]; then \
        /usr/local/bin/install-info /info/; \
        /usr/local/bin/install-info /info/; \
