comment latexmk vs texi2dvi?
Just to mention some points: If there is an error in the document and texi2dvi fails (leaving a folder .t2d), then compilation with texi2dvi after fixing the error still fails. One first has to remove the .t2d folder and then it would work. This is not necessary with latexmk. Also, latexmk does not face the problem of running forever (see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/173077/…): On the other hand, latexmk is significantly slower than texi2dvi (in an example document: 17s vs 10s).

comment latexmk vs texi2dvi?
Thanks for helping. I am aware of these 'basic facts', alternatives or pages like tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=make. My hope was to hear more about the technical differences. I'll give it more time so that more people can respond.

comment texi2dvi runs forever if the document contains references not in the .bib file
I just obtained an answer from Karl Berry (texinfo). It is an issue with biblatex. They are working on it. For now, setting --max-iterations at least avoids the loop.

comment How to define a page number showing the current ((sub)sub)section?
If the last section starts with a subsection, then the foot shows the section, not the subsection. The subsection is only shown on the following pages then. Do you know a solution for this? [or is this even 'desired behavior'?]
