Yes, add an <xsl:param>manifest=my.manifest to the target. But, that
will cause the docs to be rebuilt all the time since the BBv2 code looks
for the HTML.manifest as the real target. Hence if it never exists, in
the name BBv2 is looking for, it will always think the docs are not built.

Before I look more than I have into doing something... What would you
expect to happen with the other equally named files, in particular
