A long term solution would be to include libpoppler with Racket.

Poppler is a pdf-renderer that uses Cairo as a backend.
An equation could then be rendered by from TeX to pdf and poppler
could render the pdf to a pict.

Wilber has put FFI bindings on PLaneT that includes a page->pict  function
that renders a pdf to a pict.
