Here’s what I did:

    unionfs $(printf "%s:" /gnu/store/*/share/info) ~/tmp/info

This gives me a union of all the beautiful info manuals in the store.
To read the GNU libc’s info manual I do this in Emacs:

   C-u C-h i ~/tmp/info/ RET

It opens up the manual and I can search for snprintf in the index with
“i snprintf RET”.

Not sure about the man pages, though.
