I assume you're talking about makeindex's .ist files.
I'm not aware of any changes in either makeindex or eplain in this
regard in many years. On the other hand, I don't remember ever hearing
of plaintex.ist specifically before, either. Or testing .ist files with
Eplain in general.
I don't think it should be necessary to specify any .ist file at all.
As I expect you already know, the indexing support in Eplain is
described in the manual. It doesn't mention .ist files.
If there is a bug somewhere, please send an example I can run.
P.S. Helmut, I haven't forgotten about your bug. TUGboat has
intervened. I'll get to it ...
