I am not exactly sure, I haven't understood exactly in which language you 
were converting to, but for such conversion, another possibility could 
be to use texi2html instead of makeinfo, with an init file. Since you seem 
to be a perl programmer this shouldn't be too hard. You can have a look at
example/mediawiki.init (which can be used to convert to mediwiki markup) and 
example/makeinfo.init which leads to some html with the makeinfo formatting
