dsc-statistics documentation build fail on mipsel

[please Cc: me on replies, I am not subscribed to debian-mips]


dsc-statistics build has failed on monteverdi [mipsel] (see

The failure has happened in a safety check that checks whether the
documentation pdf that is destined to be included in the architecture
dependent package dsc-statistics-collector contains the expected

As the documentation build has worked on all archs except mipsel, I
suspect that some part of the latex => pdftex => dvips => ps2pdf

Thanks in advance.
