Looks basically good, I just have some trivial quibbles.  This should
vastly simplify debugging doc problems, though!
File Documentation/GNUmakefile (right):
$(top-src-dir)/scripts/build/ "$(MAKEINFO) -I$(src-dir)
-I$(outdir) --output=$@ $<"  "$*.makeinfo.log"
Could this be condensed into
or something like that?  i.e. define
RUN_WITH_LOG = $(top-src-dir)/scripts/build/
somewhere in a "main" build file (maybe stepmake.make?) and then just
call that definition everywhere else?
File scripts/build/ (right):
scripts/build/ #  Takes 2 parameters -
the command to be run and
sorry, totally silly complaint, but I wince every time I see this: unix
people are generally allergic to Capital letters.  Maybe because it
requires pressing shift, and the whole point of the command-line is to
be lazy?

Could this be or ?  I think that would
fit in with other scripts/build/* items as well.

Also, technically I'd call it, since it runs the
command first, and then checks the results afterwards.
