Comment (by ballapete):

 Actually this does not work completely. The cause is that the INFO files
 are renamed according to a scheme <original name>-<additional install
 information>.info. So sections à la this one in `gcc-mp-12.info` cannot

    22 INFO-DIR-SECTION Software development
    24 * gcc: (gcc).                  The GNU Compiler Collection.
    25 * g++: (gcc).                  The GNU C++ compiler.
    26 * gcov: (gcc) Gcov.            ‘gcov’—a test coverage program.
    27 * gcov-tool: (gcc) Gcov-tool.  ‘gcov-tool’—an offline gcda profile
 processing program.
    28 * gcov-dump: (gcc) Gcov-dump.  ‘gcov-dump’—an offline gcda and gcno
 profile dump tool.
    29 * lto-dump: (gcc) lto-dump.    ‘lto-dump’—Tool for
    30 dumping LTO object files.

 The string `(gcc)` should be changed to `(gcc-mp-12)` for this INFO file
 and also accordingly in the other INFO files. Otherwise the `info` utility
 would be linked to a file `gcc.info` which does not exist under this name.
