make bootstrap takes a very long time on my machine. I don't want to use make
install as I use everything where it was built (my CVS copy crashes far too
often to put it anywhere permanent ;-)). I do want up-to-date documentation,
however, as that is one source of information for the current build. I would
guess there are others who think likewise.
