Uhm...  Are you sure you were looking at info pages?  AFAIK the
dpkg-dev package which includes dpkg-scanpackages does not provide any
info pages.  It only provides man pages.  I think you must have been
looking at the man page in the info viewer which falls back to man
pages if no info pages are present.

I think this entire subthread talking about info pages is a red
herring and off the scent of looking for dpkg-scanpackages
