System: NetBSD nixsys 1.6.2 NetBSD 1.6.2 (NIXSYS) #10: Thu Mar 4 22:20:38 EST 2004 root@nixsys:/usr/src/sys/arch/alpha/compile/NIXSYS alpha
the title of this PR is the message given when trying to run html2wml after install. After inspecting this file, it seems that during the build, the path to perl is set to /usr/bin/perl instead of a version in /usr/pkg/bin. I changed the line to /usr/pkg/bin/perl5.8.4 and the program ran fine.
It is also interesting to note that the output of this program produces a WML 1.2 doctype. 1.3 is more recent and there's even a 2.0 doctype. This program may benefit from having a switch to determine which doctype is output.
make html2wml in pkgsrc-current
change /usr/bin/perl to whatever version you have installed. I'm not sure where the misdetection goes wrong.
