Current latex2html (2018.3 or after) uses preview package, but it

TeXLive or MiKTeX. If you use such TeX systems, you don't need

3) latex2html (2018.3 or after) uses the preview package when 
USE_DVIPNG (default), or IMAGE_TYPE = svg (default). So, if you 
specify options

to latex2html, the problem may not occur. At "make test", please

  make test "ARGS=-nouse_dvipng -image_type=png"

But, If you want svg images for equations, you should follow 1)
