Thanks for the report, this is fixed in cvs.
In fact the code was severly broken as it referred to a hash key never initialized.

bbdb fails to build because texi2html loops forever on bbdb.texinfo:

> cd texinfo && /usr/bin/texi2html -split=chapter bbdb.texinfo

It loops forever on lines 10606 to 10613, trying to set the following field for the "Other database manipulation functions" subsection.  Changing the loop test to use

 $up ne $element_top

instead of


fixes the problem, but I'm not sure that there isn't a better way.
