Apologies for all the mess!  But I am unclear: do you have 1.8 and 1.9
docs now?

I have only 1.9 now, as I made the transition. But I have the guile-1.8.8 binary which can be run from libguile/. I can probably get the 1.8 docs by 'make pdf' in this directory.

Is there a bug?  Let me know if you have a bug that we can
fix. To my knowledge, the 1.9 documentation is perfectly buildable from
git.  Just do "make" before "make pdf".

The bug is this: first
  make pdf
This produces the PDF. Then
  make clean
This takes away the pdf. Then try to repeat
  make pdf
This fails.

Now you say
  make pdf
should succeed. I did not try that. Instead I noticed that the missing file was in the guile-1.9.14 distribution. So I just copied it into my GIT version, and then then 'make pdf' worked. After that installed the PDFs, overwriting those from 1.8. So now, I only have those from 1.9 GIT.
