The jadetex tar distribution comes with an installation document, but it
doesn't seem to apply well to the case of an upgrade from a previous version
(or perhaps I missed something).

I want to confirm that I did the upgrade correctly.

1) extract distribution to a temporary location.
2) make
3) make install
4) remove temporary files

These are the steps that I followed, and this appeared to work.  No
complaints from any of the steps, and the problem of blank pages that I was
attempting to eliminate seems to have gone away...

These steps differ from the instructions in the doc.  I didn't execute make
from openjade*/dsssl, because new [pdf]jadetex.fmt files were placed into

If these are the correct steps, perhaps a README with the tar would be of
assisstance to other upgraders.  If not, please point me toward my next
