Supposing you already have all info files gzipped:

1) emacs -q
2) in emacs C-h i (brings Info buffer)
3) m gcc*

The following message can be read in the echo line:

"No such anchor in tag table or node in tag table or file: Top"

Below the complete excerpt of the exercise (cut and paste of *Messages*
buffer):

(c:/djgpp/gnu/emacs/bin/emacs.exe -q)
For information about the GNU Project and its goals, type C-h C-p.
Loading info...

Thanks for your attention on this, Eli!

(*) 'gcc' used as example only. It seems to me it occurs with all info
which are multi-file. As, for example, asking for diff (which is gzipped
as well) works.
