Excellent :-(  How about we discuss again whether to move to XML?  I
assume there is a newer toolchain for that.  I do have issues building
the docs here on a Debian unstable machine (not that i have researched
the problem a lot really.)

AFAIR the problem was that there wasn't a way to include certain parts
of the documentation depending on whether some symbol was defined or
not.  Is that still true?  Furthermore, do we use that feature and how,
and is there a way to work around the problem?

I think it is the standalone-include and standalone-ignore definitions,
isn't it?
