of time to relax.

Actually I'm puzzled. Because the last release also haven't had any
pre-built HTML files and on a first thought I'm very sorry of this.

But on a second thought and a check at the Makefile I think we never
released the manual as pre-built HTML files, but always as a source
release. The reason for doing is because the distributors always created
their own packages, seperated by languages.

That's why I'm kind of confused. The past releases (prior to 2.4.1) are
made one year ago and I can't say for sure how we did it. The built
system changed to often ...

I'll investigate this further soon as I'm feeling confortable.

As for the situation of Mark currently have: either we fix the
built-system and do another release of the 2.4.2 tag or we fix the
built-system to support OpenBSD (probably faster).
