Hmm, that is *not* about unpacking the source tarball as I first thought
--- it's about unpacking the documentation sub-tarballs.  Which is
something that people are quite likely to try to do as root,
particularly for the html tarball which is unpacked only in the install
step.  Maybe putting "o" into the options in doc/Makefile is a good
idea.  I'm wondering why we've not had complaints before, though.

BTW, why are there uses of both "tar" and "$(TAR)" in there?
