The wkhtmltopdf program that I was trying to build does run but
it complains it can't find an X server- starting an X server and setting
DISPLAY seems to fix that and I have a valid PDF output file.
"VALID" being questionable since AFAIK there is no PDF reader on
this machine but strings output looks credible so I'll say its working
as it is probably doing everything I need.
OK, so I tried to go get a PDF reader and wants email etc, I get
annoyed and to my surprise I have pdftk available.
Text extracts ok, seems fine. Thanks but I would like to do this
without X.
