fontconfig-2.2.95 make error (html convert)

kernel: 2.4.20-8 (stock)
upgraded gtk, pango, atk, and glib to latest version

The current task is to upgrade GIMP to v2.0, its says upgrade fontconfig, so I grabbed fontconfig-2.2.95, ran ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man;make;make install and I get this error message while doing the make (looked through the list and didn't find an answer to my question):

docbook2txt local-fontconfig-user.sgml
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.12/docbook-utils.dsl#html
Working on: /root/fontconfig-2.2.95/doc/local-fontconfig-user.sgml
No way to convert HTML to text found.
make[2]: *** [fontconfig-user.txt] Error 8
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/fontconfig-2.2.95/doc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/fontconfig-2.2.95'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Installed html2text program and it still will not make - not sure what program it is looking for - possibly I have to modify the Makefile???

tia, jd

Do you really need the documentation? Try

/configure --sysconfdir=/etc --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --disable-docs
