Hi everybody,

is the program xdv2pdf (Mac OS X only) still alive or is it abandonned?

If still alive I'd urgently need someone to test the path search mechanism
of the current TL SVN version.

In the main program, xdv2pdf_main.c, there used to be much code copied from
kpathsea, which is now all replaced by kpathsea library calls (the old code
is still there but deactivated via '#ifdef XDV2PDF_OLD_FORMATS...') and it
would be important to know if all that old code can be removed.

Otherwise xdv2pdf will have to go into TL2010 as is -- working or not!
