A buildhost might have the X11 libs installed in order to build things
which have dependencies on X.

Is there any sense why nbwww has to build the docs? I thought a
webserver has to deliver docs - not to build them. That was the reason
why I suggested to run the make process on a different host and use
rsync for distributing the docs.

btw - xml2pdf conversion takes huge amounts of memory (with the
toolchain I use here at work), if nbwww has already a load problem it
won't make to much sense to put more stuff on it. The pdf docs are
nothing which is on the needed list, it would be nice, however.
