Not all modules have a description.html file, e.g. directories
containing multiple modules have the HTML files named after the
individual modules. If the <module>.html file had description.html as
a dependency, it would fail for any module which lacked a
description.html file.

We probably need something like:

	ifeq($(shell test -f $(PGM).html && echo yes),yes)
	HTMLDEPS := $(PGM).html
	HTMLDEPS := description.html

"touch $GISBASE/bin/r.los" should also work; for the htmlcmd, htmletc
and htmlscript targets, the executable or script is added as a
prerequisite (and used to $(PGM).tmp.html file).
