info files

From: Phil Spector

I just installed version 0.77 for my Sparc Station.  I am using a
directory other than /usr/lib for the octave home directory, and
have set up the directories as outlined in the script -
in particular, I've made links from the files 
into the directory $OCTAVE_HOME/info.  
Inside of octave, the normal help files are fine, but the -i option
doesn't work:

   springer.spector% octave 
   Octave, version 0.77.  Copyright (C) 1992, 1993, John W. Eaton.
   This is free software with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.
   For details, type `warranty'.
   octave:1> help mean
   *** mean:
    usage: mean (a)
    For vector arguments, return the mean the values.
    For matrix arguments, return a row vector containing the mean for
    each column.
    See also: median, std
   Additional help for builtin functions, operators, and variables
   is available in the on-line version of the manual.
   Use the command `help -i <topic>' to search the manual index.
   octave:2> help -i mean
   warning: can't find info file!
   help: sorry, `mean' is not indexed in the manual

How can I set up the info files so that octave can find them?      - Phil
