Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation

Announcement text:

Add configuration variable $bibtex_fudge to allow to choose whether to use the fudge that made bibtex run correctly when an output directory (or aux directory) is specified.  (A planned future version of bibtex in TeXLive 2019 will not need the fudge.)

Do better to ensure xelatex gets its -no-pdf option.

Remove double quote characters in files on command line to correspond to behavior of tex programs.

Give fatal error when name of file on command line is not allowed by tex programs or gives problematic behavior.

Use TEXINPUTS as search path for missing source files for custom dependency.

Only give warning about differing expected and output filenames when the extensions differ.

Correct problem that sometimes occurred if the environment variable PERL_UNICODE is set.
