I was wrong.

I confused dhl with a well known mail carrier in configure.ac.  On top
of that, I forgot to add the fig2dev check.  Fixes have been pushed and
things should be all well on master.

# Unless you `make html`.  That target is still potentially broken due

The reason I didn't see these issues in my CI builds is because they
don't have any of the other needed utilities installed either.  The
absence of those other utilities prevented sane-html getting added to
the all target.

Hope this helps,
