I use dvipdf to do the dvi -> pdf conversion and the result is fuzzy.
I think that the problem might be in the conversion program.
I'll download the latest reader and see if this improves things.

Whatever we do should be autogenerated from the original files.
PDFs are fine and quite useful and we may want to include them
(at least as a ./configure option) but the real issue will be
finding ways to move among all the documentation that gets generated.
PDFs can have hyperlinks but I don't think they support linking "into"
a PDF document.
