Ah, whoops. I don't think adding a PDF would have helped me - I used `dpkg -L gnupg` and `dpkg -L gnupg-doc` and my eyes missed a single info file.

I think all that is needed to fix this, is to update the man page:

       There is also a feature which allows you to create keys in batch mode. See the file ‘doc/DETAILS’ in the source distribution on how to use this.

If this said directly "the Texinfo manual", I'm pretty confident I would have found it by myself. "GnuPG manual" doesn't immediately bring Texinfo to mind.
