Why is it trying to generate a manual page for thumbnails.py?

	r.colors.tmp.html: $(HTMLSRC) thumbnails.py
		$(call htmldesc,$<,$@)

This won't work with Multi.make, as HTMLSRC will be empty and so $<
will end up as "thumbnails.py". Instead, use:

	r.colors.tmp.html: $(BIN)/r.colors$(EXE) thumbnails.py
	r3.colors.tmp.html: $(BIN)/r3.colors$(EXE) thumbnails.py
