Thank you for reporting this; I've committed both of these changes under

rawtext still doesn't work. Sample output:

$ ./texi2any.pl -c TEXINFO_OUTPUT_FORMAT=rawtext ../doc/info-stnd.texi
Can't locate object method "gdt" via package "Texinfo::Convert::Text" at
../tp/Texinfo/Common.pm line 1254.

I haven't looked into why.

I just looked. I ran:

>grep -rl -e '\bgdt\b'  /usr/share/texinfo/Texinfo/

And I looked in Texinfo::Convert::Converter and derived modules.

'gdt' is defined in Texinfo::Report - and - @Texinfo::Convert::Converter::ISA = qw(Exporter Texinfo::Report);

Package Texinfo::Convert::Text (file Text.pm) contains this line:

@ISA = qw(Exporter);

which should be

@ISA = qw(Exporter Texinfo::Convert::Converter);

All of the other derived converter modules look complete.

[I know it's not good form, but have made the changes to my installed files running emacs as root. and I WILL clone my own texinfo source using git. Thank you for bearing with this method of bug-reporting for the time being.]
