As a workaround, you can also use Emacs. C-h i browses the info tree
that comes with Emacs. With a numeric argument (eg C-u C-h i), it asks
for the pathname of an info file. Handy if you use Emacs anyway.
I agree that if the base system includes info files, it should include a
reader. However, /usr/local/share/info is not part of the base system;
that's ports/packages. My current system doesn't have /usr/share/info.
