If this is a complete log, that indicates that texi2dvi is trying to use
makeinfo to expand macros, rather than TeX - you need to investigate why.  
@gol is defined in different ways for TeX and info because of differences
between how the two implementations of macro expansion work; texi2dvi -e
is unlikely to work.  The texinfo.tex included with GCC is sufficiently
recent that texi2dvi should detect that it supports macro expansion.
