The problem is that mkhtmlindex is not defined anywhere but used here. It is
included from x11-server/xorg-server/Makefile.inc. Simply replace
{MKHTMLINDEX} with mkhtmlindex and it will work.

I spent an hour or two trying to debug that error and I never could figure
it out.  For future reference, could you tell us how you approached the
problem and which tools you used?


I am no expert when it comes to Makefile and similar stuff but I simply tried to find the location of the error in the Makefile - adding a few debug statements here and there. Since the install target is quite small it wasn't too hard.
