Okay, I have now changed the system of my doc builds: They are built from 
scratch nightly on my office machine (which is idling at night any way), and 
then rsync'ed to the server. So, now the docs in should always 
be the really latest version.

The out-of-source build worked just fine on my office machine, no idea what 
causes it to fail on the server.
