Yeah, me stupid.  I've fixed it now by doing a chmod.  It's a bit of a
crude hack, but that's only because db2html is in the debian directory.
The proper way to fix it would be to move it to the bin directory and
have the Makefile there handle it (including the various db2* symlinks).

Maybe something for the future...
