Prior to sed 4.3, this didn't matter - you could work around the problem
by using 'make -C doc install-html'.  But with the addition of commit
3b29bece converting to non-recursive makefiles, there is now no
doc/Makefile, and therefore no way to install the html.  I'm not quite
sure of the best way to get po/Makefile to support a no-op install-html

The switch to non-recursive makefiles was modeld as closely as
possible after coreutils, and I see the same error when trying
'make install-html' in coreutils.

Not that this makes it OK, but it hints that this is not
specific problem in sed's build system.

If there's a suggested solution, I'm happy to use it.
Otherwise, I'll try to dig in and see how to fix it,
but it might take a bit longer.
