man/html is a generated directory, which can be deleted.  
When it is deleted, man/html/ is not regenerated.
It is used only in building the dist file using autoconf-make,
so I missed it.

putting it back..

man/html is a generated directory, so even must be a 
generated file.  How to generate?  Copy from stash place?

I missed it because the old build system separates .cc from .h files.
Missing a .h file in seemed to have no visible symptoms,
except in making a dist file.

Those files change often, and are always accessed by wildcard.
Should the makefile use wildcard instead of explicit list?

This is a generated directory.  It was luck that it was there at all.
Copy from a stash place?
