It all depends on your setup.  On my mac, pdfs are created directly  
from the LaTeX.  On my linux machines, I believe it usually goes from  
the DVI/PS but sometimes can be done directly from the LaTeX (this is  
not the default), and goodness knows what it might be like on windows.

I might be able to figure this out.  It may not be the TeX -- we  
might have to change the options in the makefile or something.  I'll  
try to take a look at it next week if nothing else comes up.

To be honest, though, my solution to this sort of problem with other  
Mailman documentation in the past has been to import everything into  
our wiki so conversion is done there and with consistent software.

I still not convinced it's the best possible solution, but it has  
greatly limited the number of queries I get on the subject.
