Hummm, that got me past that barricade, but then it needed asciidoc, which 
pulled in everything else it was fussing about. The everything else was 
close to all of tex and latex, something north of 220 megs worth.  Drive 
space I have, but thats a heck of big hunk of dependency.

However, the configure is still bailing out:

checking for library containing gdImagePng... -lgd
checking whether to build CGI programs... yes 
checking for asciidoc... /usr/bin/asciidoc
checking for asciiDoc version... 8.5.2 found
checking for a2x... /usr/bin/a2x
checking for a2x version... 8.5.2 found
checking for dblatex... /usr/bin/dblatex
checking for dblatex version... 0.2.12-4 found
checking if asciidoc version can build html-single... no
checking if a2x version can build html-chunked... no
checking if dblatex version can build pdf... yes
configure: error: "Unable to build  html-single html-chunked 

which doesn't tell me what else I need.  Clues?

I'll take a look after I make sure its installed.  Thanks for the hint.
