I did manage to get this working. I found I had to export to Pandoc
instead of running pandoc from a command line with the org file as
input. Otherwise, the embedded dot code I used would not link to an
image, but simply contain the dot code as source.

Unfortunately, in trying to export to a file, I'm getting 

Unable to resolve link "www.gimp.org/downloads"

I don't know where this is coming from, or how to fix it.

Finally, the 'Export with Pandoc' menu item only gives me two choices:
  [P] Markdown to buffer
  [p] To file

I assume it's just generating Markdown, which would then have to be
converted to docbook or whatever in a separate step. Any way to export
to docbook directly, using Pandoc implicitly?
