When building file doc/queueing.pdf, the absolute paths of the included PDF figures appear in the /PTEX.Filename directive created by pdfTeX. For instance:

$ grep -a PTEX.FileName queueing.pdf | head -n 1
/PTEX.FileName (/var/data/rlaboiss/debian/PKGS/octave-queueing/octave-queueing/doc/qn_closed_single.pdf)

This makes the build of the Debian package octave-queueing unreproducible:


The patch attached to this bug report fixes the problem in Debian:

$ grep -a PTEX.FileName queueing.pdf | head -n 1
/PTEX.FileName (./qn_closed_single.pdf)
