Please start from mk/Makefile.docs in 5.3, not html/Gmakefile.

If you want to generate a file only if it doesn't exist or if it is
older than its source file, use "make" (as opposed to writing a
mini-make using /bin/sh and getModTime).

Also, g.html2man should probably go into the "tools" directory rather
than "scripts", as it's only used when compiling.
