I re-created the format file with "make pdflatex-fmt" in the pdftex
distribution, and copied the pdflatex.fmt file into the web2c directory.  Now
when I run pdflatex, the error message is

loading : Context Support Macros / Missing
loading : Context Support Macros / PDF
! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> ...setbox \@tempboxa =\hbox {\pdfimage
                                                  {\Gin at base .pdf}}\else
l.11 ...height=0.7\textheight]{MercuryArcSpectrum}


with the input






Could I be missing other files?  Please advise.
