That looks like it would be helpful for some people.

My goal was to have a machine that could make html doxygen with zero
tex.  So I would be inclined to have my patch to avoid latex/tex
entirely and have the "with tex" version be your way.

I have a slight concern that the dependencies you expressed would be
fragile with respect to tex packaging churn, but given that there will
be a -latex option and that you're making that change and not me, it
seems fine.

size comparison:

pkg_info -S with  latex option: 177527105
pkg_info -S with -latex option:   5914928
