Works here on amd64. 

Please provide more information about your USE flags and system configuration ('emerge --info' output).

Comment 3 Thomas Beierlein gentoo-dev 2010-02-05 07:37:42 UTC
As you are running an unstable system what version of texlive-core do you have installed? And can you start epstopdf from command line?
Comment 4 Marius Stoica 2010-02-05 08:23:38 UTC
letto@local ~ $ emerge -pv texlive-core

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] app-text/texlive-core-2009-r1  USE="X doc source -tk" 0 kB

letto@local ~ $ epstopdf
bash: epstopdf: command not found
Comment 5 Marius Stoica 2010-02-05 09:28:08 UTC
I made it work by symlinking epstopdf to epspdf.
Comment 6 Thomas Beierlein gentoo-dev 2010-02-05 10:02:46 UTC
Hmm. Just checked it. epstopdf gets provided by texlive-fontutils-2009.

Then maybe this package should be added to the dependencies of texlive-latexrecommended? epstopdf used to be provided by texlive-core.

Reassigning to TeX team.

Comment 9 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2010-02-22 20:41:02 UTC
As discussed on IRC, I've added texlive-fontutils as additional dependency to virtual/latex-base.
Comment 10 Gary E. Miller 2010-02-22 21:18:59 UTC
That works for me, but IMHO the last fix went just a tad too far.  

Now texlive-fontutils is pulled in even if USE=-doc is specified.  A lot of people want to avoid that as a mandatory dependency.  Any way to fix that?
Comment 11 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2010-02-22 22:15:22 UTC
Compared with the rest of the packages pulled in by virtual/latex-base, the size of fontutils is negligible, and it has no further dependencies. Installed sizes in kilobytes on my system (x86, ext3, USE="-doc -source") are as follows:

   texlive-latexrecommended    13824
   texlive-latex               14122
   texlive-basic               20366
   texlive-documentation-base   2828
   texlive-core                20939
   texlive-fontutils            1764  (this is 2.4 % of the total size)
