As an alternative to editing the texmf.cnf file, you could set the
corresponding environment variables. This is useful, for example, if
you don't want to change a system-wide texmf.cnf file. The following
settings are done by default in the script ly2dvi:
export pool_size=250000
export extra_mem_top=1000000
export extra_mem_bottom=1000000

These settings could, for example, be done in your personal
~/.profile file. Maybe we should include them by default in
the and files?

Now I've hit a problem which is probably peripheral to Lilypond.  I'm
preparing a booklet of scales/exercises using lilypond-book.  All was going
well (once I fixed the side-by-side problem) until I added another page.
The new section I'm trying to add compiles fine by itself but when I add it
to the rest of the file I get a TeX error:

! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [pool size=71042].

Do I need to increase my pool size, or is there another way around this?
If I need to increase the pool size can somebody tell me how?
