The binary ? Where would you put it if not in bin ?

The fpdoc system uses a fpdoc.css file for style. 
We provide one which can be used, but you are under no obligation to use that file. 
You can perfectly create one from scratch, or adapt the existing one.
Since we do not know what you want to do, we do not 'automagically' 
copy it to the output.
