Slocate didn't return any tar files, just the gzipped ones in the info directory. Any the usr/src/ dir has only kernel files. Also zcat confirmed the .info.gz files are what info accesses.
Looking into this more the problem is actually that if I type "info" and then move the cursor to cp or chmod, for example, and hit return it doesn't reference the man pages. But if I type "info cp" it does.... it's not really a problem now, just an oddity. Now that I know what's happening sorta... Thanks for your help btw.
And yeah I've read about Patrick, if he still lives around here and I ever ran into him, I'd ask him for the opportunity to buy him a beer, and pick his brain.
