If we're never supposed to build or install it, it probably shouldn't
be in our cvs tree, either.

It should not be difficult to handle adding the html pages to the
package, by the way, if folks want that. Handling could be added to
the "real-su-install" target, where the "gzip"'ed pages are handled.

I think html packages are a neat idea, but I've never actually used
them, so I'm willing to go with the consensus.

On a related note, does anyone know why we don't install the man page
sources for xsrc?
