I don't use it, so I'm not concerned. What is bothering me is that I
can't build dpkg just because of problems with dpkg-doc.
- In general, how do I build just a single component from a dsc that
is the source to multiple packages?
- In this case, looking at dpkg's Makefile.in, debiandoc2html is
called with flags '-D. -h'; I don't know what -h is supposed to do
here, but clearly -D. means to work in the current directory.
Unfortunately, the version in potato and woody (1.1.41) doesn't seem
to support that flag, and -h produces a usage message. Help?
