Here is a patch against the makefile of maint-guide. It makes it install the
translated versions of html pages, and then, content negociation works for
me (TM).

The most awfull change is that it requiers to rename maint-guide.sgml to
maint-guide.en.sgml (what seems pretty logic).

The tricky part is because debiandoc2html is a bit broken. For -l pt_BR, it
makes files named name.pt-br.html , what is obiously wrong, and prevent
apache to serve theses pages when pt_BR is asked. So we have to fix the file
names after generation.

I think what is done for html could be easily extended to txt and ps. and
all this may be extended to others directories.

Any comments ? This patch won't hurt any thing as I can't apply it ;)

Bye, Mt.
