Well, the website is current built with:
  texi2html -I=$(imagedir) -I=$(exampledir) --output=$(outdir) \
  --init-file=web-texi2html.init --split=section lilypond-general.texi
so doing this with SCons would be a trivial change.  :)

I admire you for doing the makefiles in the past; I've always been
too scared to touch that stuff myself.  But comparing the
website's makefile to the lilypond doc makefiles, I really wonder
where all that complexity comes from.  It can't all be from the
translations, since it was a mess before that!

What do you think about trying SCons to build the docs
(Documentation/*), as a possible "first try" before a possible
switch for other parts of LilyPond?  It's under the MIT license,
so I can't see any possible reason for GNU to complain.
