pdflatex is used to rebuild the documentation file alphabets-doc.pdf.
there's an option --disable-docs which disables docs regeneration.
But, xindy requires latex for building make-rules modules.
Perhaps, for TeX Live build (TETEX_BUILD) we could disable make-rules
rebuilding (--disable-make-rules), because they're going to be installed
manually into the texmf source anyway? Karl, wdyt?
or maybe the Build script should supply the --disable-make-rules option
by default, and allow to enable it to get the modules built for
installation into the texmf tree.
