[Bioc-devel] error message - package GSAR

This is an issue that was reported 3 years ago (http://thr3ads.net/r-devel/2013/04/2193760-Failed-to-locate-the-texi2pdf-output-file) and has not been fixed, probably because it is extremely hard to reproduce. It tends to happen on random packages from one day to the next. In fact, in today's build report which is coming out in a few minutes, the problem does not occur.

So you don't need to do anything.
