|     grep gcl-si /usr/share/info/dir >/dev/null 2>&1 || \
|     echo "* GCL Doc: (gcl-si.info). GNU Common Lisp specific Documentation."

|     make[4]: *** [install] Error 1
| My preliminary analysis is that GCL is insisting to install info files
| in a directory (/usr/share/info) which is not part of what is
| specified as --prefix and on which I do not have a write permission
| (and even if I had a write permission, it would still be wrong).

In configure.in, GCL as a machinery to check for where to install the
info files.  With a default value as $prefix/share/info.  That is perfect.
However, down the road, GCL changes its mind and wanted to know
whether /usr/share/info/dir exits, and if it does then it would install the
info files there.  That is not right.

    if  test -f "${INFO_DIR}dir"  ; then true;else
    if test -f /usr/share/info/dir ; then
    else true;

I'll be checking in a patch that removes that.
