Yes, the whole doc/info/web out=www targets and options have always been
a bit of a mess.  It has not gotten any easier now with online and
offline web doc building.

I have made `make help' now print:

  doc         update all documentation (without images)
  cvs-clean   also remove out directories and generated files
  info        update info docs (without images)
  info out=www  update info docs with images

but I guess that a some other new targets (offline, online web)
are missing too.  We may want to add this to a more prominent
place in INSTALL.

As for Debian: please report a bug with the `make info out=www' hint :-)
