No, but we can find out.  In tetex-3.0, most *tex commands are
actually pdfetex, so

this is not correct, texi2dvi should say This is pdfeTeX ...

So, this is a smart fix, but it fixes the wrong bug.  texi2dvi is a
shell script, if I run:

    bash -x texi2dvi lilypond

I get

   + cmd='etex  /var/tmp/lily/Documentation/user/out/lilypond.nexi'
   + false 'Running etex  /var/tmp/lily/Documentation/user/out/lilypond.nexi 
   + etex /var/tmp/lily/Documentation/user/out/lilypond.nexi
   This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
   entering extended mode

Try that and see what happens.  Possibly you'll find that etex does
not link to pdfetex

    l ~usr/pkg/tetex/bin/etex
    lrwxrwxrwx  1 janneke janneke 7 2005-02-08 13:07 usr/pkg/tetex/bin/etex ->

It appears that we do.  (Hmm, this is from CVS HEAD, possibly CVS-2.4 ships
an old version that is broken?)

        * tex/texinfo.tex: Update.  We should not be distributing this,
        but since we do, use latest version.


2004-11-02  Werner Lemberg  <address@hidden>

        * Documentation/user/ More fixes to improve appearance.

        * tex/texinfo.tex: Updated from texinfo CVS -- this version provides
        better output for multicolumn tables.
