#4719: TeX Live does not build xindy fron source
 Reporter:  ken@…        |      Owner:  blfs-book@…
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:  7.6
Component:  BOOK         |    Version:  SVN
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
 Xindy is supplied by the TeX binary installer, but not rebuilt from
 source. Separated out from #4647.

 Brief summary (see that ticket for more details)
 1. needs clisp, which is a bit of a pain to build, and perhaps other
 For me, the clisp testsuite ends in a segfault and I have no suitable
 document for testing if the from-source xindy works.
 2. needs
 --enable-xindy --enable-xindy-rules --enable-xindy-doc
 3. there is a file xindy.run from the binary which did NOT get replaced
 when I installed the source with the above switch. Perhaps there is some
 alternative way of forcing that to get installed.
