The gsl install scriptlet calls install-info --delete in post_remove, this fails because the corresponding info file has already been deleted.

Additional info:

I observed this behaviour with gsl 1.12-1

I searched through the abs tree and found the same problem in the install scriptlets of maxima and e2fsprogs. Should I open seperate reports for those?

Steps to reproduce:

Remove the gsl package using pacman. Pacman will report the scriptlet failing and the gsl-ref entry remains in the info dirfile.
This task depends upon

No, please don't open separate bug reports for those other packages. I'll fix them in one go.

Fixed all mentioned packages in svn trunk. Will do the rebuilds shortly when I have more time.

e2fsprogs & maxima rebuilds are done. Still need to do gsl.
