Hi Martin,

I've noticed that texk/web2c/configure still attempts to create  
pdfetexdir/Makefile, although there is no longer any pdfetexdir. The  
appropriate section should be removed from configure.in:

Index: configure.in
--- configure.in        (revision 3037)
+++ configure.in        (working copy)
@@ -384,11 +384,6 @@

-# Don't bother with pdfelib unless pdfeTeX is requested.
-if test "$with_pdfetex" = yes; then
-  AC_CONFIG_FILES([pdfetexdir/Makefile])
  dnl Create tests subdirectory.
  test -d tests || mkdir tests

and the configure script re-created. However, it also seems that  
configure.in in the TL repository does not correspond to the actual  
configure script; it is lacking a reference to the obsdcompat  
library, and so the resulting script will be incomplete.

I then tried adding an sinclude(...) line, to recreate configure  
properly, but it seems that libs/obsdcompat/libobsd-compat.ac in TL  
is a little confused whether it should be defining LIBOBSDCFLAGS or  

Rather than me poking around further and perhaps making a mess, could  
you review these configure pieces and check that TL has a complete  
and consistent set.
