Any reason this is done as two for loops instead of one?

ACK once you rewrite this as:

for f in $(css) $(dot_html) $(gif) $(png); do \
  $(INSTALL) -m 0644 $(srcdir)/$$f $(DESTDIR)$(HTML_DIR); done

As a side note, recent automake has gone to efforts to speed up installation by using a single install invocation on multiple target files all going to the same directory. Unfortunately, until we can rely on automake 1.11 being a minimum development requirement, I don't know if we can take advantage of any of those speedups, because older install-sh scripts (necessary on systems where install(1) is less-than-stellar) didn't support multiple arguments. For reference, here's the automake NEWS snippet:

  - The targets `install' and `uninstall' are more efficient now, in that
    for example multiple files from one Automake variable such as
    `bin_SCRIPTS' are copied in one `install' (or `libtool --mode=install')
    invocation if they do not have to be renamed.
