Abolutely! I'd recommend to replace the current .ps.gz files
with PDF. I'm not sure about the best way to access the fonts
when building the web doc, though. I see three options:
- Let the make rules assume that the fonts already have been 
 installed and are directly available.
- Let the make rules do a temporary font installation somewhere.
- Keep the old crowd of environment variable settings within the
  make files.

I should add some lines on PDF file generation also in the 
ordinary user documentation.
