Would be possible, but then the file would have to be renamed for installation, because in its installation directory (usr/local/share/info/ or something, if not configured otherwise) it will usually be among the systems info files. I thought it's better if the file is not renamed, to avoid confusion, but maybe this is not so important.

If the doc dir is already specific to Octave packages, why not just use the name of the package instead of prepending "octave-"?

This patch makes pkg handle and display package documentation in textmode. A minimal testpackage is also attached for convenience.

Package documentation is assumed to be in doc/octave-<packagename>.info (not compressed). Should work for global and local installation. Info installation directory configurable (3rd option of `pkg prefix'; since prefix and archprefix are also independent and there is no common root prefix). Installed info filename and directory are noted in the package database file, this is also used to find the documentation for displaying (but here the '.gz' variant is also tried).
