I'm trying to produce PDFs with Texinfo. I've installed it with:

    guix install texinfo

Then I tried to run Texinfo and it produced a nice HTML page, but it failed when I tried to produce a PDF saying that there is no TeX installation. Then I installed the packages "texlive-latex-base", "texlive-fonts-latex" and "texlive-bin" and executed Texinfo again, but this time I got:

    TeX neither supports -recorder nor outputs \openout lines in its log file.

I could install the texlive package, but I don't have that much free space to waste. What I want is a minimal installation. I would be grateful if someone gives me a list of packages required on a base system to use all features of Texinfo.

Though this doesn't really answer your questions, I also wanted to do a
minimal texlive installation and didn't want to install the big texlive
package. So someone told me to install 'texlive-tiny' instead for a
minimal texlive installation.

I haven't tried it yet but is this information correct?

According to the source comments, texlive-tiny is only for use in
package definitions. I use texlive-base instead.

The use of texlive-base is correct.

On top of that install whatever texlive-* package may be needed. 
(I usually go by error messages to figure out the minimal set of 
packages.)
