Interesting question. I hadn't even considered that.


What's the magic incantation to make it use xdvipdfmx on my G5?

I'll copy all the files to my hard drive (in retrospect working off  
the server was a bad idea --- I can't wait 'til we get 1000BT  
networking), compile it again for a baseline, then try xdvipdfmx and  
let you all know the results.
