When attempting to build the pdf version of the 
documentation from CVS, I get the following 
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack 
\font@name -> 
l.259 ...//\$1208} 
                                                  , an 
!  ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file 
is not finished! 
The '$' in line 259 of libxmlrpclib.tex seems to 
trip up pdflatex.  If '%24' is substituted for '$', 
the link still works, and lib.pdf will build. 
Info about my version of pdflatex & linux: 
$ pdflatex --version 
pdfTeX (Web2C 7.4.5) 3.14159-1.10b 
kpathsea version 3.4.5 
$ cat /proc/version 
Linux version 2.6.5-7.95-default 
(geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 3.3.3 (SuSE 
Linux)) #1 Thu Jul 1 15:23:45 UTC 2004

Hopefully a bug from the 2.3 docs can be fixed at the same time.
The PDF production tries to set the vertical bar '|' in textmode
rather than math mode.  An example of this problem is the
documentation for set union, which looks like s--t instead
of s|t.

Should I submit this as a separate bug?

Confirmed, and fixed in the suggested way in Doc/lib/
libxmlrpclib.tex revision 1.17.

"make pdf" still chokes, but on dist now.  Haven't had a look to 
see why.

aisaac0: you should *really* file another bug for that.

The patch jepler pointed to has been checked in, and make
pdf is working for me, so: closing.
