It does do this!  -- if you have stuff in $HOME/lilypond/media/

- webserver does not have imagemagick
- webserver does not have lilypond
- webserver certainly cannot compile lilypond

Hence the $HOME/lilypond/media/ stuff.

I would like to put those in a separate git repository, so that it
would be easier to create the website (just point a variable at
your version of that other repository, instead of having to
manually create $HOME/lilypond/media/ yourself).  But that step
will be discussed in GOP-PROP 11, which is still 2 weeks off
(depending on how much time I spend on maintenance and build

In the short-term, I think it would be extremely helpful if you
could create the $HOME/lilypond/media stuff, then create the
website from a blank build tree -- convince yourself that you
can/will get the full website without running make or make doc.
