I guess that is how things will work anyway. Html files are included in the
package (due to EXTRA_DIST), but not in the rpm. Rpm "simulates" a make
install, but to a different folder; and therefore the html files are not

Yes. That's how I solved it.
Please take a look at the new Makefile.am system. It should work as desired.
It will copy all *.png and *.docbook files to the KDE doc dirs. If one of
these files exists in the en directory, but not in another language's
directory, a symlink will be created.
Fred, please take a look at the gen_am.dat file. It gives you control over
the Makefile.am creation process. Every time you add a *.png, *.html or
*.docbook file you should run the gen_am.sh script to update the Makefile
system to the new situation.
Please test and give your feedback.
