Well I looked closer. It is a shell script. The description would be
"This package also provides latex2png for converting a LaTeX or EPS
files to a PNG image."

It needs latex, ImageMagick's convert, Ghostscript's eps2eps, and netpbm's 
pngtopnm and pnmcut.

Instead of adding those dependencies to this latex2rtf package:
- add Makefile.common to define the DISTFILE.
- patch so doesn't install latex2png script and man page
- add another package for latex2png

  have latex2rtf depend on the latex2png needs

or have latex2rtf not depend on those dependencies, but have a MESSAGE 
suggesting them.

Thoughts? Anyone want to work on this?
