Hello again.

Received this from the debian bug system. I really wish there would be
some new recode release sometime in the near future. Patching the old
one for this feature request would be a pita.

Subject: Bug#402031: recode: Support BibTeX charset

Package: recode
Version: 3.6-12.1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

  BibTeX files uses a subset of LaTeX syntaxe. In order accentuated
  characters to be correctly alphabeticaly sorted (or transformed to
  the correct case), we MUST use the syntaxe :
  {\'e} (and not \'e or \'{e} or ...)

  The BibTeX charset added with this patch does this. It is based on
  the LaTeX charset. Please, consider adding it. It is really useful
  in my lab to process bibtex files from several sources automatically.

  Note that the upstream build system does not seem in a good shape.
  I needed to add two files to src/Makefile.am. The rules try to invoke
  flex with bad options (ie options from the old flex, see my previous
  bug report).
  To build the package, apply the patch to the source and call debuild
  (or dpkg-buildpackage)
  Note that, once the package is built, it cannot be rebuild :
  'make distclean' does not restore the previous state (automake files
  have been modified) and dpkg-source is unable to create the diff.

  The correct thing would be to run a new version of automake, so
  probably to unpack original source in a directory and patch/build in
  another directory. If you want I do this work, please tell me.
  But I will not start to modify the way the package is built without
  you tell me you are interested by this work. 

  Best regards,
