Description Ole Craig 2004-11-26 22:40:03 UTC
This came up while trying to emerge wine with USE="doc" (see bug #71697)...
In a roundabout way, docbook2txt calls /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/backends/txt, which in order to parse HTMLish things into text tries lynx, then links, then w3m, and then elinks before giving up. If lynx is installed, it works fine.. but if lynx is not installed but links is, then the script bombs because links (actually a symlink to /usr/bin/links2) does not accept "-dump" as an argument. 
Workaround: install lynx. 

Perhaps the docbook-sgml-utils ebuild should depend on lynx?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -C lynx
2. emerge links
3. emerge docbook-sgml-utils
4. docbook2txt foo.sgml 
4. USE="doc" emerge wine

Actual Results:  
docbook2txt wine-devel.sgml
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/docbook-utils.dsl#html
Working on:
Unknown option -dump
make: *** [wine-devel.txt] Error 9

Comment 1 Mamoru KOMACHI (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-02 20:14:35 UTC
Fixed in CVS. links doesn't have dump feature, so I simply removed
it from txt backends. (This is a bug in upstream)
Thanks for the bug report.
