Right, but I have to question the wizdom of having the main doc build depend
on so many tools - we certainly haven't documented the dependency on
latex/dvips/gs have we? - do we even have any instructions on how to set
these up in our user-config.jam's? Assuming these are for image/equation
generation, I'd rather Eric did what Boost.Math does and generate these
locally and commit to SVN. Then leave the centralised build for the "core"
tools: boostbook/quickbook etc. Heaven only knows things are complex enough

Just my 2c worth, John.
