Though I didn't worry about cleaning up, I note that a "clean-local"
rule is supported according to the automake manual.

One thing I did worry about, though, is "make distcheck".  Since it is
picky about having files remain after "make install; make uninstall",
I had to add an "uninstall-local" rule ("uninstall-hook" support is
broken) as shown below.

... and to clean up, add 

                    rm -rf $(DESTDIR)$(htmldir)
