There are some nice tools to automate reverse dependency checks, but for a large package
the real issue is the envirionment. The description of the crandalf site on github has a
nice summary. One package uses a cryto libraries (oops, install those), another uses some
latex macros I've never heard of, etc. In any case, I am seeing some failures in my
reverse checks for survival that I'm not sure how to fix. If anyone has a hint or two
I'd be grateful.
1. A half dozen fail with "graphics API mismatch"
2. Over a dozen have a latex failure of
! pdfTeX error (\pdfsetmatrix): Unrecognized format..
\AtBegShi using Output ...ipout \box \AtBeginShipoutBox
A check of kpsewhich shows I have all the packages, and I don't see a pattern in the .tex
files at the point of failure.
