On SuSE, Klaas Freitag adjusts a htdig.conf in the specfile and places
it to the right location on installation
(/opt/kde2/share/apps/kdevelop/tools/htdig.conf) and adds the necessary
dependencies to htdig for the installation. He also makes sure that the
API docs of the KDE 2.x library that's being shipped with the distro is
generated during the build process and placed in /opt/kde2 plus the
pre-set defaults of those pathes. So the user generally has to only run
the index generation dialog, which is named in a special booklet inside
kdevelop on suse how to do that. Please check the 1.3 version shipped
with SuSE 7.1 pro.

I think we can't do much about that currently and taking Bernd's
approach for indexing that's ( I think) from kdehelp or something which
also deals with htdig. Currently, the developer not using a distro
version that covers this stuff is good advised by reading the
README.htdig file in the base directory of the sourcetree and copy that
into his own htdig.conf file plus adjusting the pathes. It's eventually
quite simple and I think the (advanced) user can handle this currently
who is also the same user to install it from scratch on a distro or a
system like BSD or whatever.


PS: I will be away from tomorrow morning on until saturday evening. I
think all issues that needed clearing are already dealt with, but if you
have some questions for things you want to do over the weekend, please
post them here or mail me personally so we can clear this out until
tonight (i.e. in 7/8/9 hours from now).  I'll post this to core-devel as
KDE 2 - Trust I seek and I find in You, 
everyday for a something new, 
open mind for a different view, 
and nothing else matters....
