I disagree. I would consider a separate "doc" package in case of tools

committing pre-generated, easily accessible results.

A "doc" package would also probably be fairly platform neutral, so if it's generated once it on (say) NetBSD it could be used on other-BSD/ Solaris/Linux/etc. Can anyone think of documentation files that /are/ platform-specific? Would endian play a role at all?
