I misunderstood what psfrag was doing. I'm not sure, right now, how to  
handle this ``run on'' condition but am in contact with the latexmk  
maintainer about it. I'll get back to you as soon as I have a handle  
on it.

Hmmm... I just took the psfrag document source (had to fix a couple of  
things up to have it compile --- some commands were already defined  
and some needed protection for use in section headings) but it all  
compiled fine using the latexmk engine. Are you sure its the .pfg file  
that is causing the problem?

Good Luck,
