Missing package in the FAQ doc

On How do I build Cygwin on my own, there is a list of packages
that are required for building cygwin.
The "patch" package should be added to the list.
And I also needed to install cocom for shilka. Had this error:
../../../../winsup/cygwin/gendevices: shilka command missing? - No
such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:2889: ../../../../winsup/cygwin/devices.cc] Error 2
According to the FAQ, it is only required "If you change a certain
core part of Cygwin, namely the layout of the Cygwin TLS area".
And last thing - I didn't install xmlto and the other doc tools, and
So either configure should check for their existence and not build doc
if they don't exist, or at least suggest running make -k if these
tools are not installed.
