Yes. But still failed. I think this is a directory layout problem.
The Make file set the TEXINPUTS=../../text-en for me, it amounts to:
$ TEXINPUTS=../../text-en pdflatex pgfmanual.tex
but this result in:
kpathsea: Running mktextex pgfmanual.tex
! I can't find file `pgfmanual.tex'.
But if without TEXINPUTS setting and do it directly:
$ pdflatex pgfmanual.tex
I will get another error:
No file pgfmanual-en-introduction.tex.
No file pgfmanual-en-tutorial.tex.
No file pgfmanual-en-tutorial-nodes.tex.
No file pgfmanual-en-tutorial-Euclid.tex.
No file pgfmanual-en-tutorial-chains.tex.
No file pgfmanual-en-guidelines.tex.
(Press Enter to retry, or Control-Z to exit; default file extension is `.tex')
Please type another output file name:
! I can't write on file `plots/pgf-asymptotic-example.gnuplot'.
\pgf at plotgnuplot ...ut \pgf at plotwrite =#1.gnuplot
\immediate \write \pgf at plo...
Do you have a clue?
