Should we switch to the roff2ps & ps2pdf approach for the
Doc/Makefile? Then we won't ship the doubled PDF in the doc
package. The website needs a4 and us-letter (and their PS
versions), so maybe something like this:

    roff2ps -ms -P-pa4 < intro.ms > intro.a4.ps && ps2pdf intro.a4.ps
    roff2ps -ms -P-pletter < intro.ms > intro.us.ps && ps2pdf intro.us.ps

Is it possible to create HTML files from a roff file? My attempts
with roff2html failed.
