    Why doesn't dvips abort with an *error message*?  

If you (or anyone) care(s) to write a patch, that would be most welcome.
Otherwise, I will look into it when and if I have time.

In general, dvips' error messages are less than wonderful.

    The DVI file clearly expects an external file to be included and if
    this cannot be accomplished, this is a fatal error and dvips should
    abort with an exit code !=0 immediately.

I'm not so sure that it is always better, in every case, to abort
completely if an external file cannot be found.
