[l2h] problem with latex2html from tetex-1.0.7-47.1

The quick fix is to change the ' -sides' to ' -black' in pstoimg. This
should take care of the problem with the math formulae, but you may have
trouble with some images if you wish them to be transparent, or if you
are trying to include things like colour graphics or photographs.

The better option is to make sure you have the latest netpbm library. I
am not sure when the pnmcrop -sides option started working, but it does
work in version 10.11.4.

There are some troubles with the version of latex2html (Version 2002 
(1.62) JA patch-1.4) which is included in the tetex distribution 
(version 1.0.7-47.1) of redhat 7.3.

It is impossible to convert images with pstoimg for this script first 
call pnmcrop with options that do not exist:

line 267:

my $PNMCROP = '/usr/bin/pnmcrop -verbose ';

line 269:

$PNMCROPOPT = ' -sides ';

When I call pnmcrop I get this message:

usage:  pnmcrop [-white|-black] [-left] [-right] [-top] [-bottom]

There are no option -verbose nor -sides.

If I suppress these options from the pstoimg script, image conversion 
works and, for some latex files I get a correct result, but for some 
other the maths formulas are boarded on the left and bottom by a line.

Does anyone know what is this bug and how to correct it?

Thank you.
