Well, this is how it is for all the rest of the programs; .html are cleaned
by cleandir. I think the rationale was that building docs when you are
debugging is just a waste of time, and having 'make clean' work when you
are debugging as fast as possible is the ultimate goal. Docs were not
considered to be part of the code those days :-)
