So apparently its something a little harder to identify... can anyone
coach me a bit on what I should be looking for, or futher steps to
find what is causing the problem?

I have

        Info-default-directory-list is a variable defined in `paths.el'.
        Its value is
("/usr/local/share/info/" "/usr/local/info/" "/usr/local/gnu/info/" "/usr/local/gnu/lib/info/" "/usr/local/gnu/lib/emacs/info/" "/usr/ local/emacs/info/" "/usr/local/lib/info/" "/usr/local/lib/emacs/ info/" "/usr/share/info/" "/usr/local/share/info/")

So it's obvious that not the info files need to be listed but the directories where they can be found.

Actually I think what you try is the wrong way or place to customise:

        Once Info is started, the list of directories to search
        comes from the variable `Info-directory-list'.
        This variable `Info-default-directory-list' is used as the default
        for initializing `Info-directory-list' when Info is started, unless
        the environment variable INFOPATH is set.

C-h v <variable> RET or C-h f <function> RET or the same when the cursor is on a variable's or function's name somewhere in GNU Emacs are really nice and helpful things.
