Note quite, as I just found while writing new documentation.  For some
reason doc/Makefile.in has lost all dependencies to the .xml source
files as far as cygwin-ug-net and cygwin-api is concerned.  There's a

  faq/faq.html : $(FAQ_SOURCES)

dependency but no such depedency for the other files.  So, if I just
built the docs, then change, say, pathnames.xml, or cygwinenv.xml,
another `make' will do nothing:

  $ make
  make: Nothing to be done for `all'.

Can you fix that, please?
