The problem seems to be the version of texinfo.tex, which does not seem to 
be the one from TexLive 2008.  My MacTeX has

tystie% kpsewhich texinfo.tex

and your log has

Loading texinfo [version 2009-01-01.14]:

Note the date ... not in 2008.  This would not be the first time that a 
broken texinfo.tex has been released, but I don't see a texinfo release 
since 4.13a on 2008-09-22.  Please revert to a released version.
