I've got recent TeXLive (MacTeX 2018), Texinfo (6.6), and Ghostscript (9.23)
installed on my machine. I think those are the most recent versions of each.

But that Ghostscript-generated PDF file is indeed PDF 1.5 for me, unlike your
1.7 version.

The Mac situation is a little weird: macOS ships with an ancient (4.8) version
of Texinfo. So I have an additional Homebrewed installation of the new 6.6
Texinfo in /usr/local/opt. I have my $PATH set up to pull in the new Texinfo
(confirmed by `which` in output above). I wonder if maybe some tool here is
ignoring the path and calling /usr/bin/texi* tools directly?
