Ok, thanks for explaining.

Downloading again does not help, tar still has problems with decoder/info 
downloaded file ('Linux_sid.tar', 9.3M). The viewer works, but does not 
export coordinates ('tiff' option does not write the world file, and there is 
no 'geotiff' option).
Anyway, decoder works under Win with the -geotiff option, this is what I am 
using at the moment...

Yes, I don't understand what's happening. I see 'gcore/gdal_utilities.dox' and 
when doxygen runs I see:

Preprocessing /home/Geo/GDAL/gdal/gcore/gdal_utilities.dox...
Parsing file /home/Geo/GDAL/gdal/gcore/gdal_utilities.dox...

But in the end I do not have the 'gdal_utilities.html' file:

[aleksey at hap595 gdal]$ find . -name gdal_util*
[aleksey at hap595 gdal]$ ll html/gdal_util*
ls: html/gdal_util*: No such file or directory

No idea why... Well, it's not that important anyway. 

Thanks for your help,
