The incantation I was missing is `lndir ../src'?
I am guessing that the multi-arch. build process looks like:
$ mkdir linux; cd linux
$ lndir ../src
This makes src/, doc/, and their build directories siblings, so
something like "@verbatiminclude ../../src/..." in a manual is not

With the lndir incantation (and $GIT_DIR/info/exclude), I am not
needing ANY .gitignore files now.
