The LaTeX is installed, but I can't find the makeindex as a part of SuSE.
In the file doc/Makefile I have these two lines:
LATEX    = TEXINPUTS=$(srcdir):$$TEXINPUTS /usr/bin/latex
MAKEINDEX = /usr/bin/makeindex
(and later)
sane.ind: sane.tex net.tex
    @echo Generating index for sane.ps...
    @touch sane.ind
    @$(LATEX) $(srcdir)/sane </dev/null >/dev/null && \
     $(MAKEINDEX) sane.idx 2>/dev/null

Running both seems OK - (I am not that advanced user, that I know what 
they are used for, or how)

Thanks in advance
