If the above line in the Makefile is commented out, the configure script
finds '/usr/pkg/bin/latex', but still fails due to missing "times.sty".
The build system has "texlive-collection-langenglish" and
"texlive-collection-binextra" installed.

It will be interesting to see what happens when building "sane-backends"
on a system without any TeX system installed.  That would probably
replicate the conditions of a bulk build more closely.  The problem
doesn't appear in any bulk-build logs.

Also, figure out why the version in pkgsrc-2017Q4 and prior never had
this issue.
