That would work as long as we assume the build function is always
ran...not true with my next patch for #2978...package without build.

The other option would be to make it a optional parameter (along the
lines of license) in the PKGBUILD. We could have a default path of the
normal /usr/share/info and its variants, and if the particular package
needed to override it we could allow a line in the build file along
the lines of:
docdir=(/opt/gnome/share/info /opt/gnome/share/gtk-doc)

We could then use this + the defaults when removing the info, and
basically ignore it if the keepdoc option was added.
