Actually - having just tested installing a 'clean' Fedora 22 and then before 
doing any kind of update to the ISO image  I have this as the simple steps:


Fedora 22

Files installed for LilyPond compilation

1. sudo dnf builddep lilypond --nogpgcheck
2. sudo dnf install autoconf
3. sudo dnf install gcc-c++

Extract zip
Use 'configure --with-texgyre-dir=/path/to/tex-gyre-otf-files/'
or copy extracted dir to '~/.fonts' directory before compiling.

4. sudo dnf remove texi2html (this removes the 5.x version that gets installed)
5. Download texi2htm 1.82 from
(unzip then ./configure, make, make install - with root privs)

sudo dnf install tk (for Lily-git.tcl)
sudo dnf install gitk (for a Git gui)


It was just easier to go and get the whole tex-gyre zip file (as per 
Hosada-san's instructions)

The 'gotcha' for me was the tex-2html version that either comes with the 
build-dep install - I'd need to clarify that, but I definitely needed to remove 
the 5.x package and get the earlier one. I didn't know if it was possible to 
use a 'dnf' command to get that earlier package, I am guessing not and for the 
sake of how trivial it is to download/make/install tihs older version, it 
seemed simpler perhaps than finding some older repo and using that.

Over the next few days, I am going to update the CG with the various 
instructions for the most 'popular' distros (Linux Mint inc 17.x and LMDE, 
Ubuntu 14.x - 15.x, Fedora 22 and OpenSUSE), they're all quite similar but 
differ slightly enough to be annoying - and cause users to possibly send emails 
to the dev list asking for help. In all cases I did test make, make 
test-baseline/check and make doc.

I hope this helps.
