115 <para><application>Mutt</application> requires a group named

120

126
127 <para><application>Mutt</application> will rebuild the html documentation
128 if <application>libxslt</application> is present, then use that to update
129 the text manual - even if none of the specified browsers are present. That
130 will create an empty text file, so we will save the shipped file.
131 </para>
132
133 <para>Install <application>Mutt</application> by running the following

170 <para>
171 If you used a DESTDIR method to only install to a temporary location as
172 a regular user (as part of a package menagement process), you will need
173 to run the following as the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem>
174 user after completing the real install:

181 An info file is now installed, so you will also need to recreate the
