Hi all,

make pdf from the latest CVS version of GSL fails with:

| [142] (./examples/fft.c [143])
| Error: pdfetex (file fft-complex-radix2-t.pdf): cannot find image file
|  ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!
| /usr/local/bin/texi2dvi: pdfetex exited with bad status, quitting.
| /usr/local/bin/texi2dvi: see gsl-ref.log for errors.
| make[1]: *** [gsl-ref.pdf] Error 1
| make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/kevin/data/src/c/cvs/gsl/doc'
| make: *** [pdf-recursive] Error 1

I use pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 from teTeX 3.0 and texinfo 4.8.

I guess pdftex looks for the documentation figures in pdf format which
are not supplied by GSL up to now. Is the recommended way to get a pdf
manual ps2pdf (as make ps works)? Shouldn't this also be in the
Makefile then?
