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.
