Yep, and yes we really should fold all these into one master copy or each.

Wherever you like under libs/my_stuff/doc, I forget what it is, but there is
an xsl:param to set the location.

When I've needed an absolute path, I've always used the path-constant rule,
for example in the Boost.Math docs we use:
path-constant images_location : html ;
