Yes, they do relate to how pamphlets are implemented on

On MathAction the bibtex file will have to be located in a place
where LaTeX will see it after weave is applied to the pamphlet.
This is similar to the problem of handling external 'ps' and
other graphic format files in the Axiom book pamphlets. To do
this it is necessary for me to setup what is in Zope terminology
is known as a LocalFile and make it part of the pamphlet folder
structure. I can help you to do this when you are ready to put
something on MathAction (soon I hope :).

I think the answer is similar but simplier. It just needs to go
in a sub-directory of the directory where you decide you want to
keep the pamphlet file.

Yes, and yes. :)

hyperref works fine with pamphlet files on MathAction.

Should be no problem. If there is, we will fix it so it works.

Yes it is a very recent tetex (actually pdtex) distribution.
