Ok, i've added a simple blocker for the documentation.

I think what we have should cover the needs, but of course i can
change the patch to use case..esac and globbing instead of exact
matching on request.

Well ok, i'll attach what i have now (because i/and won't be
online until monday), it seems to work well.
Making the examples conditional was painful and i needed to part
the Makefile.sub files pretty much to get that done, just until
a minute before: it would have been much easier to implement
a simple on/off switch.

So please take these as a first draft only.  A couple of questions
are unanswered, you should test wether you like the changed
messages, for example.  And `other' documentation (e.g., `')
is yet automatically selected if just any other documentation is
installed.  I'm willing to adjust all this to make it acceptable
for GNU Troff.
