This was fixed in 1.7.9, gnutls-logo.pdf is in CVS but wasn't
distributed.  I suspect 'make distcheck' doesn't check this because
gnutls.pdf is already available.  Are you using 1.6.x?  That version
might not have the same fix yet.

'make gnutls.pdf' in doc/, which is triggered by top-level 'make dist'.
Generally, if that doesn't work, something is wrong and should be fixed.
