This is the expected behavior.

If /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/htlatex
contains records of the form

        tex4ht $1 ...
        t4ht $1 ...

modify the two records to be of the form

        tex4ht -f/$1 ...
        t4ht -f/$1 ...

If that is not the case, can you run the following sequence of
commands on a miniature latex file and email me the file `foo'.
     script foo
     cat /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/htlatex
     htlatex filename
     ls -l filename*

Most of these problems can probably be solved quite easily in response
to bug reports.
