Ah, I think I got it.  The htmldir target depends on
html/$(am__dirstamp), which is something I stole from automake when we
still just had one  With doc/, such a
variable isn't generated, and therefore 'html/$(am__dirstamp)'
translates to 'html', thereby creating a circular dependency
(html -> html-local -> htmldir -> html/).

I'll remove that dependency, it's not really needed.
