Hi Christian,
So in such case could we put a check point for configure file, e.g
if ( version texinfo < 4.0) flag=--disable-html-doc
else go ahead! :-)))

Ok, just a joke, thanks for your guide.

PS. But anyways I wonder if we could check the version for any
involved packages and give a more frinedly mesg. like:" you should have
bla bla..." instead of throwing  out the errors mesg and stop ?
If it can be done, GiNac will be as friendly as any application in MS
Windows env. :-))
