Hmm.  I think the problem might have been solved after Werner
installed librsvg and recompiled imagemagick.  imagemagick will use
this library for the SVG output if found at compile time.

Now that I found the discussion about translating the SVG annotations
in the archives, it sounds like the translation team was enthusiastic
about the idea, so I'm hesitant about converting the SVG text to
paths now.

Werner, does the conversion from SVG->PNG work for you now?  I'll add
a configure rule soon if this does solve the problem.
