texi2html - compilation problem with ESS 5.2.2 and FC1

In here:

I have RPM files for ESS through 5.2.1.  If you read the  spec file, I 
think you will see some special mustard was required to block the 
compilation of the html files.  I always thought that since the src 
package is distributed with the html in there, and so I diddled the 
thing to stop it from trying.

if you want the patch file that goes along with the spec file, you must 
download the src.rpm package.

I know there was one more update release of ESS that makes some cosmetic 
changes, some of which I had already fixed in my patch. I found the 
build problems to be difficult enough with this one that I did not 
tackle the newer one for those cosmetic reasons.  But if there is a 
major substantive benefit, I'll get on it.
