first, use your own system to test, do not try it on the server :)
no real hardware needed for that :)

see SUBDIRS in the ddp's top level Makefile which you mentioned;
it does not contain any "debian-faq"
so the answer is:
yes, you overlooked what the Makefile does;
nothing on the server scripts was the factor

note: 7doc_manuals (not 7doc) handles svn versions

7doc handles files in ftpdir/pool/ pulled from ftp, 
which means it cares "packaged" manuals

no need to CC me :-)
