Install a current teTeX, fptex or MikTeX, all of which AFAIK have the file?

AFAIK pdfcolor.tex is only used by R in texi2dvi, and so one probably needs
to look to the texinfo maintainers for what *they* are expecting.
Given the low level of support for texi2dvi --pdf, perhaps we need to ship
pdfcolor.tex (as we already ship texinfo.tex).
