Re: Slowdown problem of a Debian package

Hello wes,
Thank you for getting interested.

I don't know what is pointed out by the statement:

        'I expressed my concerns about this to you already.'

It is his two commands: 'htmake' and 'htconfig' which I dismissed.
If there is a serious defect, I would like to know it too.

Taisuke's suggestions is probably the followings. However, I think
they should be treated as another issue.
