The default target should give you something correct and complete, and "make 
check" should build on it.

But it is annoying to wait for those docs to build when your goal is to debug a 
specific issue.  I usually run "make -C lily out/lilypond" to speed it up, but 
I don't think it properly deals with all prerequisites.  It would be nice if 
there were a target ("make lilypond"?) that would update everything required to 
run out/bin/lilypond without rebuilding the docs.
