#1449 closed defect (fixed)

texi2html required for doc

If a user doesn't install "texi2html" package prior to ffmpeg compilation, it won't install docs, but there are no warnings during configure process and the default is to build ffmpeg with docs.

The solution is to issue a warning or an error (and force the user to use --disable-doc) during the configure process. Currently, it doesn't do/show anything, making a user think it will build docs too, but it doesn't build it.

    build: Fix documentation dependencies and rules

FFmpeg will now create and install documentation based on the tools installed on the system (so if texi2html is missing, it still will compile and install man pages).
