Thomas, maybe the link in make(1) should only be commented out for now.

Installation of these documents was disabled a long time ago by Hiten or Joerg (IIRC) when groff was removed from the build-tools. Although you can still go to the directory in src/ and format oneself.

The situation might improve, however, now that we have mandoc(1), but I haven't tested it on these documents.

It's true that much of the stuff in src/share/doc is outdated, misleading etc., but there are several documents which actually contain useful information (such as the PMake one).

We have several options I think:

* Leave things lying around until we utilize mandoc(1) better in favor of groff and then think about whether installation of the still useful documents should be done again (with mandoc(1) as a build-tool).

* Remove src/share/doc completely (user can dig this information himself on the web).

* Commit formatted versions of the still useful documents and remove the rest.

* ...

I'm favoring the first option but I could live with any of the other ones.
