These instructions download several 100's of MB of a git repository

able to reproduce the error.
OK, here's a smaller example taken from the Emacs source code. Unpack
the attached tarball in a fresh directory, copy the latest Gnulib
texinfo.tex into it, and run the shell command 'texi2pdf bovine.texi'.
On my platform (Fedora 23 x86-64, texi2pdf (GNU Texinfo 6.0) 6363) the
output says './bovine.toc:1: TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack
size=5000].' Full output log attached.
Thanks for looking into the problem.
