[l2h] installation trouble

I am trying to install latex2html on a Win98se machine.  I run miktex 2.0, ghostscript 6.50, and I 
have the most recent version of netpbm that I could find.  

The config.bat fails on pnmcrop.  That is, according to it's test, pnmcrop cannot do a crop on one 
side (the -l option).  I have checked this out by running pnmcrop and found that it could do the crop 
on one side, so I do not know why config.bat says that it cannot.  Since pnmcrop seems to work as 
it is supposed to, I changed the config.pl script to accept pnmcrop and build pstoimg.bat.
I don't know if it is the same thing that is causing pnmcrop to be unrecognized, but when I run 
latex2html, it fails to convert the appropriate images.

I have run it in debug mode and here is what seems to be the relevant output:
