 Sorry, I'm not going to do this.  The wording in the book is quite clear that
installing the documentation is optional.  Building with ./configure
htmldir=/usr/share/doc/bash-3.1 --prefix...  will work even if the documentation
hasn't been extracted, BUT in that case it will create an empty
/usr/share/doc/bash-3.1 directory - I regard that as a bad thing.

 We really don't want to get into alternative sets of configure instructions,
nor into something which could facilitate people who downloaded the docs NOT
installing them.  The sed works.
