Yes, but was that a good idea?

Does it make sense to have, essentially, a binary docs distribution as 
part of our source tarball?

Just go all the way and rm -rf docs/manual when building.  We've been 
talking about it for a while.  People are much better off if they either 
use the online docs or grab a set of docs that are appropriate to their 
needs (windows help, single-language tarball, etc).  The docs aren't 
viewable in a default install in 2.1 anyway.
