    Hello. I don't understand the context here. What came before make install? Did you pull stuff from cvs? Or unpack a tarball? or what?

    extract_categories.sh and some other scripts are needed to generate the documentation, so they are in cvs.

    The maxima.info files are in the tarball so they don't need to be generated, so extract_categories.sh is not in the tarball.

    Request for additional info yielded nothing. Closing this report as "works for me". Feel free to reopen with additional info.

    I got the same error when doing a make install of maxima-5.18.0 in Fedora from the source tarball (maxima-5.18.0.tar.gz), not from cvs. I looked at the Makefile in the doc/info subdirectory, and it's this line that causes the error:

    maxima.html: maxima.texi $(maxima_TEXINFOS)
    sh extract_categories.sh maxima

    So it looks like it happens when trying to create the HTML docs. If the extract_categories.sh script is needed in the tarball then it should be there, not just in cvs.
