Dear org-hackers,

When I use org-export-as-pdf with the option to use bibtex in-between
(for reftex-mode), bibtex fails to produce the bibliography.

The non-working config is as follows:

'(org-latex-to-pdf-process (quote ("pdflatex -interaction nonstopmode
-output-directory %o %f" "bibtex %b" "pdflatex -interaction nonstopmode
-output-directory %o %f" "pdflatex -interaction nonstopmode
-output-directory %o %f")))

I could trace it down to this:

bibtex /abspath/to/file-without-ext # == %b

bibtex: Not writing to
/abspath/to/file-without-ext.blg (openout_any =
I couldn't open file name

To fix it, I just had to make sure that bibtex only gets the filename:

 '(org-latex-to-pdf-process (quote ("pdflatex -interaction nonstopmode
 -output-directory %o %f" "bibtex $(basename %b)" "pdflatex -interaction
 nonstopmode -output-directory %o %f" "pdflatex -interaction nonstopmode
 -output-directory %o %f")))

Best wishes and happy hacking!,
