Thank you so much for the kind hint Michael. I had a look at a
Make tutorial and tried making some patches.

The problem is apparently at passing commands for texi2dvi to insert.
Here are the versions of texi2dvi I am using:
texi2dvi (GNU Texinfo 4.7) 1.3
texi2dvi (GNU Texinfo 4.8) 1.42

texi2dvi --help shows these versions do accept the -t option.
Any commands passed with -t or --command, for example those in the
texinfo manual, caused an error.
The following is sufficient to reproduce the problem (after

texi2dvi -t "@set emacs" tramp.texi

Yielding the following:

This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
