Yes, because your install-info barfed.

"C-h r" goes directly to the manual, it doesn't need the directory

You installed the MSYS Texinfo package, didn't you?  My guess is that
it doesn't support compressed Info files, so it thinks they are not
there.  What does "install-info --version" say in the MSYS Bash

If nothing gives a clue, I suggest to uninstall the MSYS Texinfo
package and install the MinGW port of Texinfo from my site instead.
That's what I used.  If you decide to go this way, make sure you also
have a MinGW gzip.

In any case, just copying info/dir from the source tree should restore
your lost entries.
