This is so strange that I looked again at you first letter and noticed
something.  The log you provided contains:

./lilypond.aux:1: Missing @endcsname inserted.
<to be read again>
               19 #1}
<argument> Pr@'e
@xrdef #1#2->@expandafter @gdef @csname XR#1
l.1 @xrdef{Pr@'eface-title}{Préface}

Looking at the definition of @xrdef in the log, I see that it is
different from what texinfo.texi now has.  Instead of using #1
directly, it defines and uses @safexrefname which is a "sanitized"
copy of the original text.  Are you absolutely sure you are using the
CVS snapshot of texinfo.texi?  Try putting CVS version of texinfo.texi
in the same directory where you build lilypond.texi, and see what

Also, thanks for the tarball, I've downloaded it and tried building
the manual.  For some reason pdftex seems to spin endlessly when
processing basic-notation.texi.  But after I commented out
basic-notation.texi, everything went smoothly.  So again, I suspect
you are using an outdated version of texinfo.texi.  You can see which
version gets used at the top of the log file.

Please let us know of the outcome of your experiments.
