I'm OK with this (I actually like the idea of pregenerating stuff in CVS
in general.)

I'm also OK with an (e.g.) "installextradocs" target, to be run after
"installworld", which generates and installs these docs.

Either way it would be fairly simple to keep them on the LiveCD, while
not requiring groff as a buildtool.
