You're my hero. :-) Microtype was turning off its stuff because of [draft], which apparently can have significant effects on the output.

comment How do I run bibtex after using the -output-directory flag with pdflatex, when files are included from subdirectories?
There IS a way to get around copying the file, but it kind of sucks. When giving the \bibliography{...} command, give the paths to the .bib files relative to the output directory. So if are planning on running pdflatex -output-directory=out, say \bibliography{../mybib} instead of \bibliography{mybib}. (You still have to run bibtex from the output directory, unfortunately. If using a Unixy shell, you can say (cd out; bibtex parent) (parentheses included!) and avoid having to cd .. when you're done.)

comment How to wrap text around a figure? (revised)
Great, thanks! It's too bad that (it seems) Latex has no way of doing this without specifying the actual size of stuff. (You might actually be able to do something with putting the window contents into a box and then using settobox and the calc package or something... but I think I'm too lazy.)

comment Having trouble dividing lengths with calc package
Given the choice between go with "poor typography" or "spend the next two weeks manually creating the images" I'll go with the former.

Thanks for the answer. Worked like a charm. (Too bad it's not apparently included in texlive 2010, but whatever.)

Thanks for the edit... I didn't try this out, but it'd probably work. Daniel's sounds more robust though.

I'm not using includegraphics. (Despite the name of the macro. Instead, it's pgf/tikz code generated by dot2tex.)
