You're right, they are. Silly me.

Something like

diff --git a/Documentation/Makefile.sphinx b/Documentation/Makefile.sphinx
index 707c65337ebf..eb4294322150 100644
--- a/Documentation/Makefile.sphinx
+++ b/Documentation/Makefile.sphinx
@@ -98,7 +98,7 @@ installmandocs:

$(Q)rm -rf $(BUILDDIR)
- $(Q)$(MAKE) BUILDDIR=$(abspath $(BUILDDIR)) -C Documentation/media clean
+ $(Q)$(MAKE) BUILDDIR=$(abspath $(BUILDDIR)) -C
$(srctree)/Documentation/media clean


seems to get cleandocs working again.
