Correction: per Matthias' review at
https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2010-June/msg00087.html, I
had indeed changed this patch some compared to last time.

Diff in this version from the previous: revert change to apibuild.py
that produced corrupt output names in docs/libvirt-refs.xml, and fix
$(devhelphtml) to use -o directory for all generated files rather than
-o file for just the primary file.
