>From the info dir file in /usr/share/info, you can't get to the info
files for libc or libm, because their entries are wrong. The file
cygwin-1.5.12-1/newlib/libc/libc.texinfo in the source distribution
for cygwin-1.5.12-1 contains the following lines near the top of the
* libc::                        The ANSI C library.

This incorrectly instructs info to look for a node named "libc",
which doesn't exist. The correct entry would be:
* libc: (libc).                 The ANSI C library.

This tells info to look for the *file* libc.info. There is a similar
problem in cygwin-1.5.12-1/newlib/libm/libm.texinfo:
* libm::                        An ANSI-C conforming mathematical library.

This entry, of course, should read:

* libm: (libm).                 An ANSI-C conforming mathematical library.
