Hello again,

Chris, thanks for the fast response to my previous post.  That kind
of responsiveness can only lead to one thing: more bug reports and

Here's one.  According to the tutorial (Section 3.3 Building GiNaC),
I can build the documentation with "make" commands such as

$ make html
$ make pdf

Here is what I get when I try this (using ginac version 1.3.4).
I am running the "make" commands in the same directory where I just
completed the usual "./configure" (with no options) and "make"

First I tried "make html":
$ make html
make: *** No rule to make target `html'.  Stop.

Next, "make pdf":
$ make pdf

... snip (lots of latex stuff) ...

Output written on ginac.pdf (118 pages, 753760 bytes).
Transcript written on ginac.log.
make[2]: Leaving directory
Making pdf in reference
make[2]: Entering directory
warning: target reference.pdf disabled by configuration
This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.14159-1.10b-2.1 (Web2C 7.4.5)
entering extended mode
! I can't find file `reference.tex'.
<*> reference.tex

Please type another input file name:

"make pdf" successfully builds the file ginac.pdf in doc/tutorial,
but something goes wrong in doc/reference.

Best regards,
