No, I had no intention of doing so, and the reference to Cedega was
peripheral to my question. It is only referenced at all because that is
how I learn to understand things, by triangulation between points.

But in any case, I'm having another problem somewhat more relevant-- the
docs don't compile as html for me:

 ./configure; make
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for docbook2html... docbook2html
checking for docbook2pdf... docbook2pdf
checking for docbook2ps... docbook2ps
checking for docbook2txt... docbook2txt
checking for nsgmls... nsgmls
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Make.rules
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating en/Makefile
config.status: creating fr/Makefile

Configure finished.  Do 'make' to compile the documentation.

I don't have time to look at the files right now, but from what Brian
said before, it's not strictly necessary to compile them to use/modify
them. Is that correct, or should I be disturbed by this? If I should be
disturbed, can someone point me to a quick fix?
