Hi Mike,

I guess I'll have to run some tests and see how it works out. It'll 
probably be a bit more involved than my current "gmake pdf". The dblatex 
examples indicate that it handles MathML pretty well, which is also 
important to me. At first sight, I didn't find any information about SVG 
graphics though. Are they known to work?
