Dan, Here's one way to use Eli's grep suggestion.
Maybe Eli can tell us why the resulting buffer doesn't have the
nifty clickable links you get when run the normal way (grep string  file)

Only usefull for a detailed search:

        info --output - --subnodes 2>/dev/null emacs
Will output all emacs manual to standard out

So:

M-x grep <RET>
info --output - --subnodes 2>/dev/null emacs|grep -e -n 'STRING' - <RET>

Will run grep against that output and collect the hits in a buffer.
Not sure why the links are absent but you could probably run M-x occur
in the resulting buffer as needed.
