It seems that texi2pdf replaces all single quotes by a smart right quote. Even 
if you use it inside @code{c'}, you'll not get a ' but a curved one :(

See also the texinfo manual:

So, it's documented that also inside @code smart quotes are used...

My feeling, however, is that inside a @code or @verbatim environment, no smart 
quote replacements should be made by default. I suppose this is a general 
problem in texi2pdf, so you might be best off by sending this to the texinfo 
bug list: address@hidden
