I also know little about xindy.
It seems that
	push (@command, '-x', $xindy_exp);
in xindy.pl does not work.
In the old xindy.pl, that was
	#push (@command, '-x', $xindy_exp);
	my ($output, $outfile) = tempfile();
	push (@temp_files, $outfile);
	print $output $xindy_exp;
	close ($output);
	print "xindy startup file: $outfile\n" if $debug{script};
	push (@command, $outfile);

Other rewriting of xindy.pl seems to be necessary.
For example, path separator shoud be ';' on win32. etc., etc.
