That snippet was the actual error context so you have to read it
upside down, and there is a bit of information missing. The
general overview is:

\makebm expands into something containing
\bm         that expands into something containing
\bm at command that expands into something containing
\bm at gr@@p   that expands into something containing
\bm at mchoice that expands into something containing
\makebm     ... (full circle)

It seems \makebm is an internal macro of the bm package, and the
document-level definition of \makebm to redefines that macro.

Perhaps this is the result of a recent update of the bm package.
At least that would explain why the documentation may have been
run with errors in the past.

There is a simple solution: use a different macro name for the
in-document definition.

Best wishes,
Taco
