I don't see any install method for the html files.
Do I need to install the html and images manually? Or is there some method via the configure-generated Makefile(s)?
There should be method to install the documentation in the appropirate place, so feel free to create the Bugzilla entry for that problem.
Okay. I am creating an account now. And now it is Bug 639.
(I do not want to install the HTML-ized manpages though, so I will patch the index.html to not point to the man pages too.)
But why? There are many links to the HTML manuals from the documentation pages. I don't know how the NetBSD package is organized, but it is better to split it into several peaces: -lib, -tools, -dev, -docs. If
Since the man pages were installed, it seemed redundant. But maybe splitting into a complete separate tiff-docs package would be better. Thanks.
Also, is there an automated way to get the man3 man pages to be installed without .3t suffix? (I am patching man/Makefile.in for now.)
There is no such a way. But does it a problem? If it is real problem, please, create Bugzilla report for this one too and I shall just remove those suffixes manually.
The default use of "man TIFFstrip" didn't work on a NetBSD system until I copied the file to a filename with just .3 extension. (I didn't look at any man options or configurations.)
Maybe it is not a real problem, but since the default doesn't work here, it would be a convenience.
Filed as Bug 640.
Also, I notice that html/build.html is out-of-date. It mentions ENVOPTS for example (but as far as I see ENVOPTS is not used).
Good point. It should be significally updated now. I shall do that shortly.
