You don't say what version you're using, but with the current 1.2 branch
(which hasn't changed much since 1.2.7) I just get an empty document if
the index script is empty (which is what I'd expect).

Perhaps you didn't start from a clean database?  You can pass
--overwrite to scriptindex to force it to empty the database first.

On trunk, I've tweaked scriptindex to report an error if no rules were
found in the index script, since the result (adding empty documents to
the database) is clearly not useful.

Works for me:

$ scriptindex tmp.db tmp.script tmp.data
records (added, replaced, deleted) = (1, 0, 0)
$ quest -d tmp.db picture
Parsed Query: Xapian::Query(Zpictur:(pos=1))
1 [100%]
translator=E. M. Edghill

Incidentally, I suspect you don't want those quotes around the URL -
scriptindex doesn't expected quoted values - it'll assume quotes (and
any other characters) are to be handled literally.
