It does; from build-improvements says:

   AC_CHECK_PROG([LATEX], [latex],
                 [latex], [AC_MSG_ERROR([Axiom needs a latex program.])])

However, my point was different: I cannot use the SF compile farm
hosts at the moment because basic Axiom requirements are nto met.

I don't think I want to fix the problems on the SF machines...
