It is part of the regular build process. If you do
./configure; make

the HTML docs are automatically built (see folder doc/). They probably
depend on some tools, presumably makeinfo.

Well, either you grab a release for that release's docs, or you grab
nightly or lastest Git, to get the latest docs. They are part of the
source tree, so they always correlate.
