Oh come on, guys.
Is it that difficult to read the README file ?
The README file contains countless references to its documentation section,
where it says that you're supposed to "make doc" in documentation/.

The documentation compile process does need some fixing, though.
A "make doc-html" (make target in toplevel Makefile; so you could assume
that *this* builds the docu) craps out with a stupid
FIXME: Only NROFF supported
make[3]: *** [doc-html] Error 255

- at least for me.

Also, "make doc" doesn't build HTML for me.
