findtexmf.m: system() throws error when calls findtexmf.exe


[flag,outp] = system(['findtexmf --file-type=exe ','epstopdf']);
sh: 1: findtexmf: not found
makes sense to run it on non-unix machine for both Matlab and Octave (try...end won't help, since it's not Octave error, but unsuppressed OS message).

In Matlab, calling system with two output arguments suppresses any system output on the screen. I would just leave it as it is...

ok, will see if Octave guys move on with the bug, it looks to be the one causes the problem.

Octave bug mentioned above was closed, but the issue has not been solved, so i've submitted another bug there.
