You have to run "make sgml" if you want to convert the "tmpl" files
into a valid sgml file.

There is another target: "make html" will do the tmpl->sgml and then
the sgml->html conversion.

The template files are the "source" file for the real "sgml" file,
they get merged with API documentation that is found on the C files
(ie, the description for all the API routines comes from the C code,
you should not add any of that yourself).
