Yes, but if the tools for building git documentation are otherwise not
used by anything else in base, it can make sense to use the prebuilt
documentation for git in base. Reducing git's build time is a positive
side effect of that. Fixing it is also a good idea but I thought I'd mention
this as food for thought, fwiw.
