I have this problem too.

Uh, I rebuild from my clean CVS source tree using an RPM script. Touching
that file from the script would be troublesome, as the script is generic to
work with all modules of gnome (the only module-specific code is for renaming
the development glib/gtk to 1.1 so I can still use my old GTK apps)

I did this but, jadetex needs tetex, and I don't want to waste my precious
HD space on such a large package for only one (unneeded) use.

What about a third solution? configure should check for the
existence db2html and act accordingly.

My 2 cents,
