Well, to clarify, the options are:

1) remove the --without-tex4htk when building texlive so that the
tex4ht binaries get built

or

2) Continue to have an add-on package for tex4ht, which will require
updating this package.

This is a case where the Fedora "stick to upstream" doesn't resolve
the dilemna - on the one hand texlive is an upstream, on the other,
texlive4ht is an upstream. I do notice that upstream tex4ht has
updates beyond the version included in texlive. That's true of many
packages though, and it would be mad to start splitting everything
out.

Jindrich's call I guess.
