Technical detail: You only have Meta/ after install.  Ideally, we want to build
the repository data without requiring an install.  It is painful
enough as it is to gather together all of the meta data :-/

Well, at present, we are being quite naive and including all pdf files
that live in inst/doc.  This has obvious disadvantages.  On the other
hand, it gives some motivation to have clean svn check-ins and such.

In the case of RBGL, a number of pdf files were accidentally checked
