Good evening! I just tried compiling the latest point release version (1.0.1), and the one prior (1.0.0) and get the same trouble. Whenever I compile with the --enable-docs flag, the subsequent make command fails with:

rst2man ./doc/help.rst > src/conf/help.cc.1
./genhelp.sh src/conf/help.cc.1 src/conf/help.cc
make[1]: ./genhelp.sh: Command not found
make[1]: *** [src/conf/help.cc] Error 127

Indeed, there is no genhelp.sh file in the tarball:

]$ tar --exclude="*/*/*" -tzf re2c-1.0.1.tar.gz 
re2c-1.0.1/
re2c-1.0.1/aclocal.m4

re2c-1.0.1/run_tests.sh.in
re2c-1.0.1/src/
re2c-1.0.1/configure.ac
re2c-1.0.1/test/

Perhaps this is meant to be created on compile? Building without the flag seems to go through, with a message about rebuilding for the docs:

Reconfigure to rebuild docs: ./configure --enable-docs

Of course, is always nice to be able to generate documentation for use :)

Yep, I forgot to package this script, thanks for reporting!

Of course, is always nice to be able to generate documentation for use :)

Documentation is always generated (from precompiled files) without --enable-docs (simple make is enough). This configure option is mostly used by re2c developers who change documentation source files and need to regenerate them.

Added forgotten 'genhelp.sh' to distribution files.
This fixes bug #194 "Build with "--enable-docs" fails".

The fix: 9a0b960.

I will release 1.0.2 by the end of the week (after addressing some other documentation issues). Meanwhile, if you just want to have docs (and not change and rebuld them), configure without --enable-docs.

You're welcome, and snap, I guess I misunderstood the purpose of that flag. Thanks for clarifying!
