That sounds like about what I was hoping for.

    $ cd doc
    $ make info

Should rebuild the info files.  You need makeinfo and probably a Tex 
installed.  TeTeX is pretty good, IMANAQSHAIPSBO, and, IIRC, it comes with
makeinfo.  Then just use

    $ info --directory=.

and page through the info file to the sections you want to examine.

Once Law was sitting on the bench
        And Mercy knelt a-weeping.
"Clear out!" he cried, "disordered wench!
        Nor come before me creeping.
Upon you knees if you appear,
'Tis plain you have no standing here."

Then Justice came.  His Honor cried:
        "YOUR states? -- Devil seize you!"
"Amica curiae," she replied --
        "Friend of the court, so please you."
"Begone!" he shouted -- "There's the door --
I never saw your face before!"
