I was unable to actually test `make dist`, by the way, as it didn't seem
to want to play nicely with texlive on my system.

$ make manual.pdf
./ -pdf manual.xml
Creating manual.pdf ...
Making portrait pages on USletter paper (8.5inx11in)
Cleaning up: output manual.fmt *.aux manual.log texput.log *.out
  deleting output
  deleting manual.fmt
  deleting *.aux
rm: cannot remove '*.aux': No such file or directory
  deleting manual.log
  deleting texput.log
  deleting *.out
rm: cannot remove '*.out': No such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:234: manual.pdf] Error 1

This shell script for creating the manual fails to create either the pdf
file, or the temporary files that it then fails to remove... but it
doesn't say why it failed so it's not clear whether I have a
misconfiguration or what.
