Thanks Mike and Robert for mentionning dblatex. Dblatex can detect the  
figure format (by checking the filename suffix),  automatically convert  
SVG to PDF, and then compile the tex file. For SVG figures, it calls  

Therefore, provided that inkscape(*) is installed there is no need to  
convert manually the figures.


(*) if another converter is required, it is not a big deal to add its call  
in dblatex.
