What does that mean exactly?  Should I be able to take a DOC produced
on a Mac and use it on GNU/Linux or W32?

Yes.  That's why it is installed below $datadir.

Okay, then there is trouble, because that does not work today.
If I compile and run an X, non-carbon, version of Emacs on Mac OSX, I get
the DOC entry for x-server-vendor that says it returns "Apple" (in
fact, "Apple Computers" is returned for carbon).  But for an X version
the return value is "The XFree86 Project, Inc".

The w32 DOC entry says x-server-vendor returns "Microsoft", but that
entry is not even in a DOC file produced when building on Mac OSX, so
I don't understand how such a DOC file can be used on w32.  Should the
w32 files also be in SOME_MACHINE_OBJECTS?

I guess a table of what object files where used to link the binary could be
generated and from that Emacs could find the correct DOC entry (and
the correct C file, C-h f x-server-vendor and clicking on "C source code"
always gives xfns.c, should be macfns.c for a carbon build).
