	As shipped, dvipdfm is configured to handle at most PDF
version 1.2 files.  However, it is capable of handling v1.3 files.
Thus, the configuration file should be patched to increase the range.
The contention that dvipdfm is able to handle v1.3 files is based on
an exchange with Mark Wicks (dvipdfm author).  It seems that the main
role of the version limit is to prevent a document being stamped as
v1.2 from including 1.3 features via an included image.
	Install dvipdfm and try to include a PDF v1.3 image file
within a LaTeX document.  It will complain about the version being out
of range.
	Add the following patch to dvipdfm/patches.
