Yeah, the zz was added by me whilst sleuthing.  Sorry for the
confusion.  I added it across the board though. Before I added it, the
message had been 'mtcars.zzpdf_tex' not found.'

I know with org I can directly :export :file basename.svg

The thing I am trying to accomplish is to find an approach that works
for both org export to html and org export to latex->pdf without
having to edit the org document in between exports.

When I do  :export :file basename.svg the resulting pdf does not
inline the svg.  Rather it contains a link to it.

I thought the dance with the svg package was a way of accomplishing my aim.

Do you see a better way?
