The "Doxyfile" contains all the configuration options for a project,
including where you should specify the location of LaTeX program and
any support information. To give Doxygen instructions on the fly,
either custom-make a temporary Doxyfile and give it as a command-line
option or stream the configuration data through standard output and
give Doxygen the command line option to read configuration data from
standard input.

I forgot to say this last time, but Doxygen should have the "dot"
program around too, to create cool diagrams. (Its path is also
specified in the Doxyfile.)
