The HTML Tidy documentation is contained in a separate tarball. Unpack both the source and docs tarballs before starting the build.
Install HTML Tidy by running the following commands:
patch -Np1 -i ../tidy-050722-prevent_PRE_newlines-1.patch && sh build/gnuauto/setup.sh && ./configure --prefix=/usr && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the root user:
If you have libxslt-1.1.14 installed, issue the following commands as an unprivileged user to build the man page and HTML documentation:
cd htmldoc && tidy -xml-help > tidy-help.xml && tidy -xml-config > tidy-config.xml && xsltproc -o tidy.1 tidy1.xsl tidy-help.xml && xsltproc -o quickref.html quickref-html.xsl tidy-config.xml && cd ..
If you built the man page and the Quick Reference HTML file, install the man page by issuing the following command as the root user:
install -v -m644 htmldoc/tidy.1 /usr/share/man/man1
Now finish the installation by installing the pre-built documentation as the root user:
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/tidy && cp -v -R htmldoc/* /usr/share/doc/tidy
sh build/gnuauto/setup.sh: This command prepares the source tree for building using the GNU “Auto” tools.
