I guess the big question for me is, where is the docroot?  Under /usr/local/etc
still?  I haven't had my docroots there for years, they've either been a user
home directory (~www) or on its own disk partition (/www, etc).  I suppose that
can be a question during an interactive install, or part of the Configuration
file.  If that's the case, "make install" should probably install the docs
*only* if this is a brand new install.
