There's no specific documentation as it isn't
a special case.
The reason that it works is:
a) Putting a directory on the command line
builds the project in that directory.
b) Building a project means building
all non-explicit targets in the project.
Thus, '.' builds all non-explicit targets
in the project in the current working directory.
