Probably the documentation on lilypond-book is lacking (can somebody
please check and or fix?), but the lilypond documentation itself has
always been built using include directives to lilypond-book.

If you have v2.2 or later, use:

   lilypond-book --process='lilypond-bin -I include-dir1 -I include-dir2'

if you have an earlier version, do:

   lilypond-book -I include-dir1 -I include-dir2

See lilypond-book --help for more information.

Of course, the first file name found in the path that matches is used,
so you still need unique .ly file names for snippets included in one

You'll also want to check-out the --output option, and possibly even
use LilyPond's pre-cooked makefile, installed as something like:


Hope this helps.
