You are wrong, $X11BASE has an info directory with its own info/dir
file, and it really should have (as $X11BASE/man should have its
whatis.db). Currently packages like gtk and gimp and others install
info files there).

The pkgsrc gtexinfo package has $LOCALBASE/info and $X11BASE/info in its
default INFOPATH btw.
