A related question to this:

I would like to add a 'html' target to the 5.1 Makefiles.
 - a file 'description.html' will contain further description, notes,
   author etc, stored in the directory of module source code

Makefile 'html' target idea:
 - generate first part of the man page on-the-fly with --html-description
 - append 'description.html'
 - write all as file 'module.html' into HTML target directory

As G_gisinit() is used in every module, I cannot directly run
in the Makefile:

        $(GISBASE)/etc/bin/cmd/$(PGM) --html-description <something>
	<add description.html>

unless there is a fake GRASS session.

Is there a better way than faking a GRASS session (hope so!)?
