Given that you've installed all the tools mentioned in the docs section
on how to build the docs, a quick "make" in doc/src/sgml should do the
trick for both.

I fooled around making this happen on my Red Hat 8.0 box just recently.
My recollection is that all the tools were installed already (though I
may have made a point of selecting them when I installed the distro) ...
but I had to tweak a couple of symlinks that were pointing to the wrong
places before Postgres' configure would agree that I had a working doc

The docs for the former should have been in the commit that implemented
it ... how old is the checkout you started from?  As for the latter, I
think Bruce is presently claiming we don't need a GUC variable at all
for it.

If we're going to document them, then that's the file they belong in.
Just make a separate subsection with an appropriate title.
