Great, thanks in advance.  I suggest that you use the `texinfo.tex`
file directly from the 'texinfo' git repository so that we test the
most recent version.

This turned out to be difficult.
As a first step I tried to upgrade texinfo.tex to current master
of the official Texinfo git repo. This broke 'make doc'
with a XeTeX error, handed over by 'texi2pdf' with the pretty
useless message: "XeTeX exited with bad exit status"
This happened just after finishing the first XeTeX pass.

I appended various options to texi2pdf to make the output
more verbose, but I did not get useful output regarding
the XeTeX termination.

Bisecting yielded that the first texinfo commit that introduced
the error is

The last compiling commit is

With this commit I could get a successful 'make doc'.
Then I compared the Learning Manual against a version compiled
with the currently bundled texinfo.tex.
I noticed that the Index was completely missing.

After another round of bisecting it turned out that
is the first commit that introduces the missing index.

Due to my lack of TeX skills I don't know how to proceed further.
Werner, I'm sure that you can help here. :)
