	latex2html does not work with netpbm-10.24
	Save the lines:
		\begin{document} $sin(x)$  \end{document}
	in a file, and call it:  "test.tex"
	Process the file with latex2html:
		latex2html test.tex
	you will receive an error, the images that the file generates
	cannot be processed.  Try then with:
		latex2html -notransparent test.tex

	Now, if you can, try installing netpbm-9.24,
	latex2html  will work perfectly.

	I think there is something wrong with netpbm-10.24,
	it seems to remove the image files before it processes
	them.   I compiled netpbm-9.24 and and it worked fine
	with latex2html.
