First of all, checking version should probably be controlled by some
customization. Especially when we export to .texi (which does not
involve calling makeinfo), not to .info.

This customization might be set to 'auto by default, making ox-texinfo
check makeinfo version.

Parsing version is probably the easiest way. Another alternative is
trying to run makeinfo on a small test file with math environment and
checking if it gets exported as expected.
