I am unable to build the tools doc as of the SVN HEAD this morning (r542).  The initial error seems to be:

pdflatex mpi-report.tex
This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
entering extended mode
LaTeX2e <2003/12/01>

kish, ukrainian, nohyphenation, loaded.
Document Class: book 2004/02/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class

! LaTeX Error: Option clash for package color.

...and then things fall apart from there -- errors every time there's a color change.  On my Snow Leopard Mac, I have pdflatex installed via ports:

pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)
kpathsea version 3.5.4

I don't follow the versioning of pdflatex and friends, so I have no clue if that's old or recent.
