The documents removed from xterm.doc are generated in doc/specs as pointed
I had to take a decision. either kill the duplicate in xterm or build
doc/specs to produce something that is already in another package.
(and killing small bits of the reason for the existance of this branch)
Even if i fully understand your point, that documentation still belongs to
the specs package. Otherwise we should start moving each spec file to the
package it belongs to and be coherent all over the place.
In a future when xterm and other bits and pieces will fall into their own
packages we will see what to do.
