Yes, html: has to happen before the inclusion of to become the
default target, but afaics we can just move "all: html man" up?

Yea, a distprep target just depending on all the required targets seems to be
the way to go for that.

Not really related: I think we should seriously consider removing most of the
things distprep includes in the tarball. I'd leave docs in though. But IMO all
of the generated code doesn't make sense in this day and age. I guess that's a
discussion for a different thread and a different day.
