13 sane-backends had font generation disabled, but I changed it to the
14 VARTEXFONTS method for now. Wouldn't it be better to populate this
15 temporary directory with links to existing cached fonts or something like
16 this? I don't know much about latex internals, but computing the fonts
17 always because one _might_ be written sounds like a bad idea.
