To add to the confusion on IRC.  The docs/gst/tmpl/*sgml files should
stay in CVS, they are hand edited and supposedly automatically updated
as well.  But the 0.3.3 release has docs/gst/sgml/ and docs/gst/html
dirs.  Those dirs are autogenerated and I don't think those files are
supposed to be in the release.  And in fact they didn't used to be and I
seem to have old Makefile.am rules that get rid of them.  To make it
even more confusing.. the Makefile.am in docs/gst has tmpl/*.sgml in one
clean rule and html and sgml dirs in another.  I guess neither of these
are ever run during make dist?  That whole doc build system needs some
tender loving care...
