In this case, the explanation I gave might not be right. I assumed that
you had, like me, updated to the latest CVS version of the fink package

- fink list netpbm (to know where you are exactly)
- fink rebuild latex2html (This does not take long, and in the configure

  checking for pnmcrop... no
  Warning: Will not be able to generate images due to above failure.
It did not find the pnmcrop program, because it was not installed.
pnmcrop is (now) installed by the netpbm-bin package, and I think it
used to be installed by the netpbm (<= 9.24-1) package.
