Yeah, as Karl stated, updating the pdftex documentation is not so 
straightforward... As I see, we have on p4 some (perhaps) obsolete 
files: pdftex-t.txt, moreover texmf/doc/pdftex/examples/ can be also
removed, as pdftex has something better (I believe) in manual/samplepdf/
(not yet on p4). Martin?
