"make -s clean"?

I am not very enthused, especially if the primary motivation is
about "check-docs".  Such a script must be prepared to filter out
cruft from the output of $(MAKE) and to pick out the bits that
interests it and that has been the way of life with $(MAKE) way
before Git started as a project ;-).

In order to make it more robust, targets like "print-man1" can (and
should) arrange their output in such a way that interesting parts
are easily findable.
