Redhat 7.3: emacs indentation in C mode incorrect.

Description of Problem: Redhat 7.3: emacs indentation in C mode incorrect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNU Emacs 21.2.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use 'emacs foo.c' to edit a .c file.
2. within a function, hit tab to indent.
it indents 8 spaces.
In C mode, indent 2 spaces, in each set of braces.
On Redhat 7.2 and prior, (emacs 20.7.1), it does this.
The amounts of space and other behaviour are completely customizable - look at
the info pages: hit "m CC Mode<ENTER>" for more information.
I (and the user here that reported the problem) tried
alt-m m CC Mode<ENTER>
and the response was
No manual entry for CC Mode
I copied the emacs binary and /usr/share/emacs/20.7 directory from Redhat 7.1
to his machine, now running 7.3. He's happy using that.
Infopages are accessed through C-h i
'Control-h i' just moves me up one line in the file,
and inserts the character i.
Just run info - I'll stop here, this is a bug report facility, not a support
channel. The above is not a bug, but a configuration issue.
