There is no connection between where you place Denemo source files and
where an executable derived from them will be placed (*). It depends on
the configure and install steps.

by analogy with where the images are relative to the denemo-manual.html
file they would need to be in a directory:

yes, indeed the commands
/ && ./configure
will create a makefile that does that.

It's not clear what you are doing - are you building from sources (if
so which), or are you installing via a package manager, or what?


Well to be precise, the executable created by the "make" step will be
in the src directory, but you would need to run the "make install" step
to marry it up with the manual, although it does execute from src.
