At the moment, I just want to compile the docs.

Not to discourage this whole endeavor, but this can be kind-of
done already -- you use the last binary rather than compiling
lilyond from source, but as long as there's no syntax updates, it
works just fine.  I've done this for years (yes, even during
GDP!), and Trevor still does this.

Sort of.  I never actually compile the whole documentation.
All I need to do is to check that any edits I make are not
going to break compilation, so all I need is to pass
the single file I've just edited through lilypond-book,
run a simple script to check refs, and then run texi2html
so I can check the formatting and appearance in a browser.
I have a script to do this and it usually works fine.  It's
far quicker than building the whole set of documents - typically 10-30 secs depending on the number of examples and snippets to be compiled.

AU 1.2.4 Building the docs without compiling, I belive it is.

I've never tried this, so I can't comment, but it looks
like it needs more than vanilla Windows plus a bash shell.
