No, I had not done so before this mail. But now I have and I can verify 
the failure you are getting.

The problem is that I cannot fix it.

I issued a 'make release_docs' command and it seems that this does not 
re=generate the .xml files (stdlib/doc/src/proplists.xml in particular) 
so whatever documentation I change in the src/proplists.erl file, the 
change does not get reflected in the .xml file.

In fact, it seems that these files are part of github and actually 
pretty old (proplists.xml is more than two years old !?!?). Apparently, 
the information in them refers to names of variables in specs of the 
.erl file.  This does not feel right...

How does one re-create the .xml files?  Because 'make release_docs' does 
not seem to have any effect on them...
