Actually, the d-i manual uses dvipdf, but many other documents in the Debian
Documentation Project use  debiandoc2latexpdf which uses 'pdflatex' as a
backend. The reason for this is that the d-i manul is written in Docbook-XML
but most other documentation is (still) written using DebiandocSGML.

Are there any known issues/recommendations with pdflatex we should take into
account in the build process?
