   This is a known issue with info, aggravated by the fact that
   man2info insists on listing the shorter link when generating the
   man page whether or not the short link will work.  The workaround
   is to use 'info coreutils cp'.

FWIW, it is more a problem with the systems dir file than info, info
simply checks what dir contains for looking up things.  But the OPs
system is strange, since the C preprocessor is called `cpp' not `cp'.
