I wonder whether the files
tex4ht.c (dated 2003-02-05-01:43)
tex4ht.env-unix (tex4ht.in for unix)
tex4ht.env-dos (tex4ht.in for ms windows)
provide the desired support.
Why @imbindir@ is placed on convert, but not on dvips. As far as
tex4ht is concerned, the G-records are passed literally to a system
system("dvips -mode ibmvga ....")
system("@imbindir@\convert -crop 0x0 -density ....")
Instead of having multiple environment files such as
tex4t-imagick-win32.env and tex4ht-netpbm-win32.env, a single
environment file similar to the following one may be used.
Such a file allows selective loading of tagged segments, requested
through -c switches of t4ht.c. For instance
t4ht foo -cimagick -cwhatever ...
