This package simplifies the insertion of external multi-page PDF documents 
into LaTeX documents. Pages can be freely selected and similar to psnup it 
is possible to put several logical pages onto each sheet of paper. 
Furthermore a lot of hypertext features like hyperlinks and article 
threads are provided. This package supports pdfTeX (pdflatex) and VTeX. 
With VTeX it is even possible to use this package to insert PostScript 
files, in addition to PDF files.

Announcement text:

  Since packages like pst-pdf must produce DVI output at the
  first run, it is no longer acceptable that pdfpages stops execution
  when running in DVI mode. Of course pdfpages cannot insert PDF
  documents in DVI mode but it will just insert empty pages.

Thanks for the upload.
