There is a package, print/latex-mk, which includes a latex.mk and uses
some variables like LATEX_MK. Currently it does not have a dependency
listed on latex (not sure why, it will build but certainly not do
anything useful without latex being installed) but I'm wondering if
there will be any wierd interaction with your latex.mk. I think I need
to add a latex dependency to that package.
