Ah.  Looks like there are "issues" with building stuff from CVS without
having all of the docbook tools installed.

--disable-docs doesn't disable the installation of the documents, it only 
disables the rules which build them.  Hence, attempts to build in the 
'doc' directory will fail unless the files already exist.

I'd like to make sure the documentation can be installed, but I don't want 
to make building from tarballs require the docbook tools.  I think that 
means we want to require docbook when building from CVS but not when 
building from the tarball.  Perhaps more hacks to configure.in will be 
required, although I'm not quite sure what shape they should take.

Looks like configure.in checks for docbook2html; if that is in your path, 
things should build cleanly.  Otherwise, the configure script is doing 
something weird...
