Hi Martin

I did get the latest CVS (if a few days back is the latest).
I have netpbm 9.24-1 though.  I modified /sw/lib/latex2html/l2hconf.pm by
hand to tell it to use png and gif.

My attempts to latex2html now give me

Failed to read in document parts (out of memory?).

Is there away of getting more verbose logging ?
