1.7.9 contains gnutls-logo.pdf but it does not contain the other
images in pdf format (doc/layers.png doc/x509-1.png doc/internals.png

Generating them from the png input with convert (instead of using
ps2pdf on the eps figures) seems to produce satisfying results.

Ok. So it is broken due to the missing pdf-converted images.

I am not able to reproduce the "Undefined cross reference" messages with
1.7.9, so I guess I did something stupid yesterday.
