I'm trying to build R using the code from SVN. I am able to successfully 
build the source from here:


However, when building the code checked out from SVN (either from 2.15.2 
tag, or the trunk) I get the following error:

Error: running Sweave on vignette 
failed with message:
  chunk 2
Error in texi2dvi(file = file, pdf = TRUE, clean = clean, quiet = quiet,  :
   unable to run 'pdflatex' on 'example-1.tex'
Execution halted
make[1]: *** [vignettes] Error 1

Is there a way I can fix this?

with thanks
