Description Ulrich Seidl 2005-07-25 11:11:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050721 Red Hat/1.0.6-1.4.1.SL3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
transfig creates wrong dependencies for -L pstex. The picmakefile written by transfig contains rules to build a *.tex and a *.ps file. However, the *.tex file depends on a *.eps file for which no build rule is available.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. transfig -M picmakefile -L pstex file.fig
2. see the picmakefile

Actual Results:  the picmakefile contains two rules to build the needed *tex and *ps files:
file.tex: file.eps picmakefile
        fig2dev -L pstex_t -p file.eps file.fig > file.tex

file.ps: file.fig picmakefile
        fig2dev -L pstex file.fig > file.ps

The problem here is, that the first rule requires a *.eps file, while the second rule only knows how to make a *.ps file. Thus, calling make on the picmakefile fails with:

make: *** No rule to make target `file.eps', needed by `file.tex'.  Stop.

Expected Results:  Either add a third rule which knows how to build an *.eps file (like in transfig 3.2.3d-2 from Enterprise Server 2.1) or change the requirement of the first rule to depend on a *.ps (instead of a *.eps) file.

Additional info:

The transfig rpm of Enterprise Server 2.1 works as expected.
