looking at this patch I noticed:

(1) the changes for makeindex.1 mentioned in ChangeLog are missing

(2) the patch for mkind.h is reversed.  Moreover
   "Usage: %s [-ilqrcgBES] ..."
indicates three options `-B', `-E', and `-S' without params. That ought to
be something like
   "Usage: %s [-ilqrcg] [-B bgr] [-E egr] [-S sgr] ..."

(3) mkind.c
   if ((bgr != -1 || egr != -1) && egr < bgr)
is equivalent to
   if (egr < bgr)

However, I'd suggest
   if (egr != -1 && egr < bgr)
   bgr > -1 and egr == -1
interpreted as egr == infinity

(4) would it be useful to require that (egr-bgr) is a multiple of sgr?
