I'm confused.  Which egcs version are you using?  I can't find these
problems in my version(s) by looking at the generated Info docs, and
I've tried egcs 1.0.3a, 1.1.2, and a recent snapshot.  Plus, the
recent snapshot didn't have the problem in its gcc/f/intdoc.texi,
and, though *that* might be rebuilt on my own system, the problem
also doesn't seem to exist in the mainline of the repository, looking
at my ("viriginal", and recently-updated) copy of that.

Further, it looks like you didn't notice that gcc/f/intdoc.texi
isn't actually a source file.  Perhaps yours was generated by a buggy
f/intdoc program at some point on your system, which in turn was
compiled by a buggy gcc.  See the first few lines of intdoc.texi,
and the corresponding rules in Make-lang.in, for more information.

(It's definitely easy to get confused by all this stuff -- if I had
my druthers, we'd put *only* true source files in the repository, and
perhaps even in distributions...too many people get confused otherwise,
as our tools generally don't help us understand the distinctions when
we go to view/edit derived, i.e. non-source, files.)

        tq vm, (burley)
