The pdf looks formatted properly. The info file has problems
though. First, it gave an error

$ make
makeinfo c.texi
c.texi:6455: warning: unknown @end data
c.texi:6462: @node seen before @end example
make: *** [Makefile:8:] Error 1

the attached patch fixes that. But then, it doesn't produce, just
a file named c. That file does work as an info file.
