Following up on my own mumble: There are some lesser known make targets for git which almost do that already.

make install-html uses only asciidoc and xsltproc, but not xmlto, for generating (and installing) html doc, which makes some people happier already.

make quick-install-doc installs the man pages (and only the man pages, not the html version) by using the "man" branch provided by "the man" (JC).

I would go about renaming quick-install-doc to quick-install-man, introducing quick-install-html doing the analogous using the "html" branch and quick-install-doc doing both, which would be more in line with the install-doc target.

Are there any objections to renaming quick-install-doc to quick-install-man?
