Yes, in Gnuastro we use Gnulib which is also configured to import `texinfo.tex', and I pulled Gnulib changes yesterday.

It could be related to the change to use @ as the escape character in
the index files.  Could you try running "texindex gnuastro.fn" and
"texindex gnuastro.cp" and having a look at the contents of
gnuastro.cps and gnuastro.fns afterwards?  Then you could try running
"pdfetex gnuastro.texi" to see if the PDF file is created with the

This worked! After manually running `texindex' on the `gnuastro.cp' and `gnuastro.fn', the PDF created by `make pdf' has indices. So is this due to a mis-match between the `texinfo.tex' and my running Texinfo (with the former being newer)?

Running "texi2pdf --verbose gnuastro.texi" might give more information
about why texindex is not being run or not being run properly.

The raw command didn't work because of all those imported files, so I manually added `--verbose' in the Makefile where it calls `texi2pdf', and ran `make pdf'. It is indeed printing more information, you can see the result attached. Is it detecting the new format with the following message?

/usr/local/bin/texi2dvi: New xref files      = gnuastro.cp

Thanks a lot,
