Dear R developers,

I had some problem when building package: for exemple when building the 
package e1071 available from CRAN, I get the following message error:

* checking for file 'e1071/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* preparing 'e1071':
* cleaning src
* running cleanup
* creating vignettes ... ERROR
/usr/lib/R/bin/texi2dvi: pdflatex exited with bad status, quitting.
/usr/lib/R/bin/texi2dvi: see svmdoc.log for errors.
Error in texi2dvi(file = bft, pdf = TRUE, clean = FALSE, quiet = quiet) :
        running texi2dvi on svmdoc.tex failed
Execution halted

The system I use is:
R2.0.1 under Debian Linux (testing) with kernel 2.6.9-1-686

The pdflatex version is:
pdfeTeX (Web2C 7.4.5) 3.14159-1.10b-2.1
kpathsea version 3.4.5

I attached the log file svmdoc.log.

I have a quick look on the perl script build and it seem there is a grep 
for error.
In the log file there is a line with the following:
file:line:error style messages enabled
it is just the summary of the option used when running pdflatex and then 
an error is systematically reported.

If you have any idea where the problem comes from?
