[fpc-pascal] building docs from svn

I've copied current svn of fpc2_fixes and fpcdocs to a working directory:

   asterix:svn> ls -ld fpc fpcdocs
   drwxr-xr-x  14 root root 4096 Aug 23 16:09 fpc
   drwxr-xr-x  44 root root 4096 Aug 23 17:12 fpcdocs

Fpc compiles OK, but when I try to generate html docs I get:

   asterix:svn> cd fpcdocs
   asterix:fpcdocs> make html
   make -C ../fpc/compiler checkdir msg2inc
   make[1]: Entering directory `/home/bobb/freepascal/svn/fpc/compiler'
   make[1]: *** No rule to make target `checkdir'.  Stop.
   make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bobb/freepascal/svn/fpc/compiler'
   make: *** [../fpc/compiler/msg2inc] Error 2

It looks like a cooperative entry in the fpc/compiler Makefile, and a msg2inc
file, are needed for this to work.

Is there a way of switching the included messages off?
