In the current 'externals' build system, all of the help files are

we have two copies of each file to maintain: the original and the one
in externals/build/doc. I am writing a section in the makefile for
darwin to copy these files from the source. I would like to put this
in all of the makefiles (darwin, irix, linux, and win) unless anyone
has any objections. Then I'll delete externals/build/doc from the CVS
since it will then be generated by the makefile.
Wouldn't it make even more sense for "make install" to copy these files to
somewhere where PD can by default see them?
I didn't even know that there was a ~/externals/build/doc directory until you
mentioned in just now.
I guess somewhere in some readme there's a suggestion to add this to PD's help
search list, huh?
This is a CVS organization issue and has nothing to do with installing
I copied the help files into the folder because they had to be renamed
for version 0.37 (with the help- prefix).
I think copying them automaticaly with the makefile is a good idea.
