[racket-dev] make gets hung up building documentation

Okay, that's just bizarre. If this were my machine, the next step I'd
take would be to make a copy of that file and start throwing stuff out
of it (running it at the command-line, not in drracket) until I got
very small and and still had the bad behavior. Like start by throwing
away everything after the quoted part below.


PS: thanks for taking this on!
