Ticket #3662 (closed bug: fixed)
Don't know how to install documentation
|Reported by:||bos||Owned by:||simonmar|

|Type of failure:||None/Unknown||Difficulty:||Unknown|

Following the changes to the build system that got merged in earlier this year, it's no longer obvious (or documented, as far as I can tell) how to either build or install documentation.
The procedure that used to work for 6.10 was make install-docs, but the Makefiles in the docs and docs/man directories have bit-rotted, and the install-docs target has vanished from the top-level Makefile too.
If I knew how to build the documentation, I'd send in a patch, as I think it's important that this be fixed before 6.12.1 goes final, so that platform packagers like myself can figure out how to easily build and install the documentation. Unfortunately, I'm not even sure what needs fixing in the new build world.
