That's because gv.info was produced with makeinfo 4.8, which had a
bug: it would produce an Index entry even if the manual had no
indices.  There's this snippet near the end of gv.info in the gv

  * Menu:

It shouldn't be there.  When I produce the GV manual using the latest
makeinfo 6.4, this part is not generated.

IOW, you should report this bug to the GV maintainers: they should
refresh their Texinfo version.
