This source package landed on my m68k build a couple of days ago. When I
checked the log of the previous build to find out how long the build might
take, I noticed that a significant portion of the log consists of TeX


I assume the files created there all end up in the various doc and info
packages, but they are not part of the m68k build! I hope there is nothing
arch specific in the docs, so they should not be part of it. But if these
docs never get uploaded, why does my poor machine have to build those files?
If the doc building could be moved to the binary-indep target, we would all
benefit, unless you own stocks of my local utilities company. I don't know
how much time is spent for the doc target, but it it just 10% of the build
time (looks more like 50% of the space of the log), this could save us 6
hours on certain machines:
Build needed 62:15:44, 163920k disk space
