Check if you need to run LaTeX more times to get the refefences right

LaTeX is not a smart compiler - You need to run it several times to make it back-patch all the missing refs. The message if to do so or not is buried in its endless output and the log file. This grep lines helps to find it.

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

That's nice, but you could just run it three times and be done with it. I know the scons build tool (a make replacement) has built-in support for building documents written with LaTeX including re-running LaTeX and BibTeX the appropriate number of times, at least that's what I've heard.
