grumble about GNU info

Whenever I use GNU info I feel that I've been rickrolled.
ls is using colour when it has no business doing so. The device has
no colour capability and the terminfo says so. So I went to look up
how to control this "feature".
As is too often the case, the ls(1) manpage is incomplete. It does not
describe the environment variable LS_COLORS (it should). ls(1) says
the full documentation is in texinfo.
The info command is particularly annoying, so I install pinfo. But
pinfo doesn't take the same arguments as info, so I give up on pinfo
for this task.
I go to info coreutils 'ls invocation'. I come up empty handed.
So I'm grumbly.
