Yes, I saw the problem, and I got around it (either by installing TeTeX,
or either by changing the Makefile, I can't remember). But then it
simply didn't work. I was running gpm, and it was doing nothing. Not
even staying in the background. Debug mode didn't output ANY message. So
I just let go of gpm.
