+KchmViewer is a CHM (MS HTML help file format) viewer written in
+C++. Unlike most existing CHM viewers for Unix, it uses the
+Trolltech Qt widget library and does not depend on KDE or Gnome.
+However, it may be compiled with full KDE support including KDE
+widgets and KIO/KHTML. This script builds Qt-only version.
+The main advantage of KchmViewer is extra support for non-English
+languages. Unlike other viewers, KchmViewer in most cases is able
+to detect help file encoding, correctly shows tables of contents of
+Russian, Korean, Chinese and Japanese help files, and does correct
+search in non-English help files (search for MBCS languages -
+ja/ko/ch is still in progress).
+KchmViewer is written by George Yunaev (see the contacts page
+for details), and is licensed under the GNU GPL license. It uses
+chmlib and some ideas and code from xhcm.
