Well, I don't think those need to be rebuilt (I can just modify the 
PKGBUILD in svn pending the next update), but it could not hurt to do so 
for evince (which I use daily) and yodl (which I had never heard of 
before). If no one opposes I will put this on my TODO list.

:-) But was that the standard for high-quality back in 2001?
In any case since it looks as though latex2html is no longer maintained, 
I would favour moving it to community. texlive-htmlxml includes latest 
tex4ht which is far superior.
