By "not work" do you mean you get an error like "Info file ccmode does
not exist"?

That target of that link is "*Note Customizing Indentation:
(ccmode)Customizing Indentation".  The "(ccmode)" means the node sought
is in the file called "ccmode", which happens to be the CC Mode manual.
Have you got this manual installed?

The GNU project hasn't installed the HTML version of the CC Mode manual
in the place the Emacs manual expects,
<http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/ccmode/>.  So I'm sending a
copy of this email to webmasters@gnu.org, as suggested.  It would seem
that the html links in this manual have been erroneously generated.  I
don't know if html ccmode is installed on www.gnu.org.

However, there is an HTML version of the CC Mode manual available at
<http://cc-mode.sf.net/html-manual>, though this is the manual for the
newest version of CC Mode, 5.31.
