We might misunderstand each other.  The online target is made of all
docs built in a way to be put on a web site with automatic language
selection, whereas the offline target is for offline browsing with docs
installed on your local system.  This would be completely orthogonal
with generating (or not) general.texi if we didn't have to take care
about not mentioning two branches in the offline incarnation of the web
site (general.texi).

I won't judge the quality of autoconf/make-based system as long as it
builds correctly from a clean tree.  Please try not to do too dirty
things, though, for the comfort of the release manager :-D
