Thanks Rhys,

  I had not thought about other directory builds. I will add that to the todo 
list for next time :)

Hey Patrick,

Congrats on 2.5.90!

./configure && make && make check

Works for me on Ubuntu 18.04 x86_64, additionally trying a VPATH build, using 
-j for parallelism, and running 'make -j install' for a non-standard prefix.

cd doc ; make html

'make html' works in a regular build.  I've not looked at the Sphinx docs 
before.  They're pretty.

Does not work from a VPATH build (i.e. unpack GSL sources, run, 
create a wholly separate directory, then run GSL's configure from inside that 
separate directory).  In particular, with messages...

    make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/rhys/Build/gsl-gcc/doc/examples'
    Error: Config directory doesn't contain a file.

VPATH building of documentation is an edge case.  Likely not worth pursuing a 
fix at all and certainly not worth holding up 2.6.  I just tried it because I 
tend to use VPATH for autoconfiscated projects.
