Can someone check if the DOC file is being built properly on Windows
in the RC branch?  He seems to be saying that it fails to scan the .c

As far as I can see it does not.  I suspect that this problem is specific to
the Windows port and/or Andrew's binary release and affects all built-in
functions, which is why the DOC file is so much smaller than it was in  Unfortunately, I don't have time right now to download and build
from source.

I recall a similar problem quite a long time ago, although I think that
related to a more specific set of compiled functions and it was fixed (I
think by you, Eli).  The current problem arose only with the
pretest; the 21.2 release and the pretest were OK.
