I think the old versioned DOC files are necessary if you wish to properly run
an old versioned emacs binary (src/emacs-...).  An easy way to prune them is
to run the script `$emacs_src_root/admin/quick-install-emacs --prune-only -v .'
in the top-level emacs build dir.

As for the two DOC and DOC-<current-version> files, I suppose these probably
ought to be hardlinks to the same file (I thought they were, but a quick
check shows that's wrong).

80% of success is just showing up.  --Woody Allen
