When building wget-1.14 on Fedora against the newest Texinfo 5.0 I get following errors:

wget.texi:879: @itemx must follow @item
wget.texi:980: @itemx must follow @item
wget.texi:3097: @itemx must follow @item
wget.texi:3608: warning: @itemx should not begin @table

I'm including a patch for doc/wget.texi
