Reviewers: ,

As per earlier discussion on devel list, this patch just adds a little
bit of extra info on the make process, noting the documentation build
commands and the possible length of build times.

Basically it's to stop other people getting worried as I did when a
single step of the doc build process seemed to have hung with no

CG tweak: some extra info on make doc and doc build times.
