    Wouldn't the fact that 'make clean' removes it be good enough? How
    about adding a Documentation/Makefile, which also has a make clean to
    get rid of them?

    That is, use the same mechanism that many packages that use yacc or
    other C code generators use to specify which files can and cannot be
    removed.
