does HeVeA have some issue with that?

Pardon me for butting in here. I basically agree with Dan. In other projects I've seen, an empty directory for stuff yet
to be built will still have the in it to enable
building the directory's contents using the GNU build stuff. It makes the lives of the developers (and downstream users)
sooooo much easier than trying to fool the automake system
some other way.

It is something else to maintain.

Why is that file needed at all? All it does is list the files so they will be in the distribution file. Since the whole thing is generated, the file names are not known ahead, so it is a wildcard list anyway. Why not just list "html/*" in the parent's Makefile?

I'll see if I can do this. It will be next week before I have a chance to look at it though.
