I'm not sure about this.
Can't we just define PATH_MAX when compiling for HURD?
I understand that the patch does the ideal thing (no path length
limit), but do we really want all those ifdefs for a system that is
barely used?

To build the docs we normally do (see the release script in DOCS/tech)
touch ffmpeg/libavutil/x86/asm.h
configure --language=all --yasm=''

I think it was never planned to have the docs buildable separately from
the code. Probably the easiest thing to do is to provide a separate
Makefile (and configure if really needed) for the docs.
