Integrating an InterpolatingFunction times another function

Hi,

I have made a sample InterpolatingFunction:

points = {{0, 0}, {1, 1}, {2, 3}, {3, 4}, {4, 3}, {5, 0}};
ifun = Interpolation[points]

The following integral computes fine:

Integrate[ifun[x], {x, 1, 5}]

However, this integral will not be evaluated:

Integrate[x*ifun[x], {x, 1, 5}]

Why will this integral not be computed?  Is there any way that I can
compute this integral?

Thank you kindly!
