Perhaps the better thing to do long term is convert these documents to
Docbook XML or asciidoc or some format that people are actually
familiar with and might have. Then we can probably enforce building
them on dist better like we do in libXi. Converting linuxdoc to
docbook would probably be really straightforward.
