Thank you Nik for your detailed information, this was really helpful.

I had a first look at the FreeBSD-Makefiles you mentioned in your
posting. AFAIK it would mean an almost complete rewrite of the doc.*.mk
files because FreeBSD uses Berkeley Make which is not compatible with
GNU Make (tell me if I'm wrong or if there exists an easy conversion
I'd really like to see a similar set of Makefiles for Linux and
maybe will start a small project on this topic. If I have some
questions I will post them here.
