  Going into /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/gdb, I discover that they aren't built
there at all.
  Going into /usr/src/gnu/dist/gdb/doc, I realize that I need to run
./configure to get>Makefile to build things. Further I
then discover that it depends on things in ../../readline/doc, and then
I discover that I can't get all the dependancies worked out even after
I fake the>Makefile stuff.
