The index.texi.lnk file is the representation of a symbolic link
created by Cygwin's make[¹] and should point to either index.perm or
index.unperm.  On my system doing an ls under bash shows :

$ ls -l index.texi
lrwxrwxrwx    1 stevep   None          106 Fri May 10 15:24:12 2002 index.texi 
-> ./index.unperm

If you're using a Cygwin version of makeinfo it should understand
symbolic links.  If you're not and you want a permuted index copy
index.perm to index.texi, or if you want a unpermuted index copy
index.unperm to index.texi.

[¹] From the lispref/Makefile :

,----[ Makefile<lispref> ]
| index.texi:
|       if [ a${permuted_index} != a ]; \
|       then \
|         ln -s $(srcdir)/index.perm index.texi || ln $(srcdir)/index.perm 
index.texi || cp $(srcdir)/index.perm index.texi; \
|       else \
|         ln -s $(srcdir)/index.unperm index.texi || ln $(srcdir)/index.unperm 
index.texi || cp $(srcdir)/index.unperm index.texi; \
|       fi
