but there are still failures long into the process dealing with docs
The big changes here are mostly to make $(srcdir) != "." work correctly,
fixing the docbook related sections and fc-lang were particularily
tricky. Docbook refuses to load system entities from anywhere other
than where the original .sgml file was located, so no luck looking in
"." for the configure-generated version.sgml and confdir.sgml files.
fc-lang needed help finding .orth files; added a -d option to set the
directory as the least evil of many options.
Now to go use a faster machine and try and wring out the last issues.
