Bug#244276: Bug#294459: HTML manual generated by a broken tex4ht install

tex4ht is indeed orphaned; I've added the corresponding WNPP O:
bug #268126 to the CC list. If you consider an NMU, or if you
could adopt it, you'll be blessed by many.

The latest upstream fixes a ton of other bugs,
see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?pkg=tex4ht

The upstream was asked by Debian to provide literate sources
(see #244276 tex4ht: source code is obfuscated), and the thing
was marked as a serious policy violation. The upstream
took a considerable effort to do so and provide them at his site, and
his efforts were never acknowledged -- instead the package got
orphaned :( just another b/g info on why it's probably high time
to do an NMU.
