Agreed, but this is an obstacle for the major problem: GNUmakefile and
Makefile (after the user runs ./configure) in one directory.  I am still
thinking how to solve this.

You're right, with the notable exception of `validate-html' (which still
has a generic name).  However, libexecdir is not in PATH, so the
makefile has to be updated somehow to use the full path to the binaries
(using generated by configure, or similar).

Sounds sensible, although I don't like that very much.  Where should we
install the DTDs?  It should be relative to $(prefix) and we can
probably make the script record the proper location (again, according to
the prefix the user specifies).

This also means to have the DTDs in CVS, and have `make dist' include
them in the tarball.
