OK, clearly for some very strange reason symlink'ed folders are NOT
allowed.  I removed the /opt/fpc/src/docs symlink and copied the
fpcdocs_svn directory into /opt/fpc/src/

Then I ran 'make rtl.chk' and it worked!  :-)

Then I ran 'make fcl.chk' and it failed!  :-(

/opt/fpc/src/fpcdocs_svn $ make fcl.chk
../utils/fpdoc/fpdoc  --package=fcl --warn-no-node --descr=fcl.xml
--content=fcl.xct --import=rtl.xct,../rtl/     --descr=iostream.xml
--input="-S2 ../packages/fcl-base/src/iostream.pp"  ......

An unhandled exception occurred at $080CD8D9 :
EFileNotFoundError : ../packages/fcl-base/src/ascii85.pp

make: *** [fcl.chk] Error 217

Ah, now it's actually reporting a missing unit. ascii85.pp doesn't
exist in FPC 2.2.5.  Any ideas how I can make it works without using
FPC trunk?

  I'm working on some minor improvements to the fpdoc.css file as
well. It doesn't have any formatting for definition lists.
