In my "packaging scsh for Debian" job, I have made it possible to
install only the docs, not the rest, by calling "make doc-inst". This
mainly consists in splitting the dirs target into dirs and dirs-doc.
The reason I did that is that in Debian, scsh in split in two
- One containing the program itself and man page. This package gets
rebuilt for each of the Debian architectures.
- One containing the documentation. This package gets built only once
and is "valid" for all architectures.
With my change, people can build the documentation package without
having to compile scsh.
Note, however, that I haven't taken care of separate building of the
docs; you so kindly put them already built in the tarballs. :)
Here is the patch, if you are interested.
