The 'make' call is the platform-agnostic frontend to the sphinx build
tool. Calling "sphinx-build" explicitly would require a bunch of
command-line options, which are platform-specific (in addition to option
passing itself is platform specific). But, to be honest, I haven't even

Still, whether I run `sphinx-build`or `make`, I still need to copy files
back and forth, so I don't think that particular choice affects the
other problem above. Is there no built-in command that allows me to copy
files in an "imperative" way, so I can construct my "numpy" rule around it ?
