Yes... that's right... but i wouldn't be a common solution because
configure will be generated from autoconf... which you as user of a
package don't need.

I see... let me think about it...
looking in the the searching of kwm leeds to prefix not to
exec-prefix... this lacks... but this directory will only be used if
there are no sgml-tools on the machine...
I will try to work out a common solution...

Arrgghhh... ok I know your porblem... it's the make (or maybe automake),
which should work with the $(wildcard *.html) but it doesn´t...
On almost all the other machines it works fine...

so please try this package and let me know how this works:

if this works I will do the same to c_cpp-reference... if not I have to
rethink also on this :-(
