Hi folks,

I have just configured and installed latex2html-2002-2-1 to work with
texlive on HP-UX 11.0 and Red Hat Linux 9.0.  I discovered a bug in the
configure script while installing on Linux, and I wanted to report it to the

When configuring for Linux, I wanted latex2html to use the texlive
installation instead of the native tex/latex in /usr/bin.  After some
experiementation, I realized that I needed to supply the --with-tex,
--with-latex, --with-initex, etc. switches to configure.  Unfortunately, a
bug in the configure script prevented it from ever finding the correct latex
executable.  It looks like options for pnmcrop were added with the
'with_latex' variable.  This patch fixes the problem.
