The tool is texi2html; it's a Perl script.  So to produce the HTML docs,
the poor user should (a) download the libc sources; (b) install Perl; (c)
get texi2html from somewhere on the net; and (d) run all these together to
produce the HTML version. 

Now, what do you think are chances that this will succeed for an average 
DJGPP user?
