(another) Issue compiling gnome-libs
I am trying to compile the gnome-libs package. However I am hitting the following error message at the at of the configure step:

*** Building HTML ***
test -d ./html || mkdir ./html
cd ./html && gtkdoc-mkhtml libart ../libart.sgml
/scratchbox/devkits/doctools/bin/openjade:../sgml/art_svp.sgml:68:10:E: end tag for "PARA" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified

I have the following libart packages installed:

[sbox-FREMANTLE_ARMEL: ~/gnome-games/gnome-libs-1.4.2] > apt-cache search libart
libart-2.0-2 - Library of functions for 2D graphics - runtime files
libart-2.0-dev - Library of functions for 2D graphics - development files
libart2 - The GNOME canvas widget - runtime files
libart-dev - The GNOME canvas widget - development files

So I am not sure what packages I am missing - something involving html? Taking suggestions.

May be : ./configure --disable-gtk-doc
.. as the file 'rules' says.

Reason : The files are dated 1999...2002 and the ancient
sgml tools to make the docs may no longer be available
on a modern system.

patch -p1 < gnome-libs_1.4.2-37.diff
.. and read ' gnome-libs-1.4.2/debian/rules '.

It is a very good idea always to apply the patch,
may fix some bugs, and show some special configure
options ... in 'rules'.

Ahh very good to know, I'll give that a try. Can you tell I am slightly new to building packages? Thanks for all your help/suggestions the last few days.
