On Tue, 29 Sep 2009 Vincent Danjean submitted the new


package to CTAN.

Location on CTAN: support/latex-make
Summary description: easy compiling of complex (and simple) LaTeX documents
License type: gpl

Announcement text: 
This package provides several tools that aim to simplify the
compilation of LaTeX documents:
 * LaTeX.mk: a Makefile snippet to help compiling LaTeX
documents in DVI, PDF, PS, ... format. Dependencies are
automatically tracked: one should be able to compile
documents with a one-line Makefile containing 'include
LaTeX.mk'. Complex documents (with multiple bibliographies,
indexes, glossaries, ...) should be correctly managed.
 * figlatex.sty: a LaTeX package to easily insert xfig
figures (with \includegraphics{file.fig}). It can interact
with LaTeX.mk so that the latter automatically invokes
transfig if needed.
 * And various helper tools for LaTeX.mk
