Comment (by ken@…):

 Grrr!  I hate TeX. Gave it a build which appeared to work (some different
 switches, and not building in the source directory). Before I tried to
 install that, I decided to test the binary version from the installer. To
 start with, flex.pdf was recreated, but evince was unable to display it.
 Hacked around with some simple TeX, got that working, moved on to "simple"
 latex - almost everything I found online did not work, but I eventually
 got a random page which sort of showed pdflatex was working. Went back to
 flex, this time I generated the pdf and evince displayed it ok.
 Ostensibly, nothing different in either my PATH or what was installed.

 Will come back to this when I've done graphite2.
