Why do you think that \include{foo} ought to /generate/ the file 
foo.tex.  I should expect that even using LaTeX, one of the absolute 
for a successful run is the presence of a readable foo.tex file, or a 
readable link to it in the current working directory.  Can you see that 
there is such a source?  Without it, you will, of necessity, get just 
the message you are getting.  A run of TeX cannot be expected to 
generate the very file it is supposed to be setting in type
