Can someone please fix htdocs to produce proper output by simple "make"?

I wanted to fix a typo in htdocs/Security. Typing 'make' gave me a warning
that some layout.xml was changed and the whole website had to be
re-generated, no new index.html. Ok, cd .. && make, and see it explode
because of some other file missing. Get the hint to use "make NEW_HTDOCS=
autolayout.xml" (very non-obvious!), and see that fail again because I
don't have the right pkg installed. Got frustrated.

	cd htdocs/Security
	vi index.xml
	make index.html

	cd ..

Can whoever made this please:
 * make "make" work in whatever dir (I don't care for NEW_HTDOCS, just
 * Check if required pkgs are installed when using NEW_HTDOCS, and
   print what needs installed if not
 * Fix that loss that happens when one just types "make" in htdocs right
   now ("make: don't know how to make bootfloppy.html. Stop" in
   "Documentation" dir)

And while we're here: There is no www/htdocs category for gnats.
