If I were you, I would look at the differences between files from
original emacs and and files from your package. If there was
significant diferency between them, it would be meaningful to provide
info files with your package.

Anyway if you really want to include files, it's much better to rename
them. Any attempt to replace existing files will end with pacman
yelling at you about conflicting files.
