Description of problem:
The TeX's dviljk binary translates the given typesetter-independent .dvi (DeVice Independent) file -- DVIFILE to Hewlett-Packard Printer Command
Language (PCL) by calling dvicopy, and then dvilj* (dvilj4 by default).

But the required /usr/bin/dvilj4 binary is missing in tetex 
package, as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to translate some DVI file into Hewlett-Packard's PCL:
cp /usr/share/texmf/doc/programs/dvips.dvi /tmp
2. Run "dvihp" on it
Actual results:

dvihp -v -o dvips.pcl dvips.dvi 
Running dvicopy dvips.dvi >/dvihp.DX4957/dvi4956.vf
This is DVIcopy, Version 1.5 (Web2C 7.5.4)

Running dvilj4  -v -edvips.pcl "/dvihp.DX4957/dvi4956.vf" 
/usr/bin/dvihp: line 125: dvilj4: command not found
/usr/bin/dvihp: dvilj4 failed.

Expected results:
File dvips.pcl successfully generated.

Comment 6 Jan Zeleny 2013-03-26 15:16:58 UTC
I'm sorry but this issue won't be addressed in RHEL5, as it is now in late stage of development cycle and only critical fixes are accepted. Closing as WONTFIX.
