Following some leads, I found that the problems stems from a
configuration file having:

# -image_type
# This specifies the type of images produced by latex2html when processing
# unknown environments and/or e.g. math formulae.
@IMAGE_TYPES = qw();

So IMAGE_TYPES is empty.  Reading a bit, I managed to solve this by
creating ~/.latex2html-init with:

@IMAGE_TYPES = qw(png gif);

Strangely, this problem didn't occur in the past (I've been using
latex2html for years).
