It has been needing documentation for quite some time, happy to have
gotten around to it.

I have never used the doc target myself, will look at it a bit more.

make is the standard build and IMHO should not be replaced ...
make or make all builds some common targets, so for the normal users
of pcbios this is the most common to use until you get into the
details of iPXE building (no need to confuse the standard first time
builders any more then necessary)

There is also make everything that does a different type of multi build.
Michael: would it make sense to add ipxe.efi and snponly.efi to the all target?
