Yesterday I did a build with the new otp_src_17.0.tar.gz tarball using my
script which served me quite well from R13Bxx to R17RC2, but this time it
failed at "make docs":


make[2]: Entering directory
`/tmp/tmp.6FO62sEXov-erlang-otp/otp_src_17.0/system/doc/reference_manual'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `docs'.

make[2]: Leaving directory

make[1]: *** [docs] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory
`/tmp/tmp.6FO62sEXov-erlang-otp/otp_src_17.0/system/doc'
make: *** [docs] Error 2


I compared the 17.0 to the 17RC2 structure: it looks like the file
"system/README"
is missing. I could "fix" the build process with a "touch system/README"...
not a real fix of course.

Regards,
Boris
