Usually this is a result of an old dirty hack that checked for the 
existence of pdfoutput command. This is allways defined in pdf(e)tex. 
Though this does /not/ mean you want to produce pdf. Doublecheck your 
preamble for outdated hacks and replace them if neccessary at all with 
the ifpdf package.
