OK, but w/o the rotation, my system using v 2002-2-1 produces the image just fine.

Indeed. That's strange.

as if it thought it had succeeded? 

Inspecting the code between "*** processing # images ***"
and "Generating postscript images using dvips",
there's a $NO_IMAGES flag.  Setting that to 1 produces exactly
the symptoms you're seeing.  So, as the Country Doctor says: "Don't do that!".

Apparently if you use $NO_IMAGES, you're then supposed to generate
the images off-line by re-running l2h using the images_only option
(I've never used it this way)

I suppose it would be helpfull if it printed a reminder instead of silently
skipping; especially to provide a clue if it wasn't done intentionally!

or it simply got configured oddly, for some reason.
