Bug #3121: "make rdoc" fails
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/3121

Author: Yusuke Endoh
Status: Open, Priority: Immediate

Hi, Eric Hodel

Maybe because of recent change of rdoc, "make rdoc" fails on trunk
when there is already .ext/rdoc:


  $ rm -rf .ext/rdoc

  $ make rdoc
  *snip*
  # success

  $ make
  *snip*
  Generating RDoc documentation
  ./miniruby -I./lib -I.ext/common -I./- -r./ext/purelib.rb  ./tool/runruby.rb --extout=.ext  -- "./bin/rdoc" --no-force-update --all --ri --op ".ext/rdoc"  "."
  uh-oh! RDoc had a problem:

  Directory .ext/rdoc already exists, but it looks like it
  isn't an RDoc directory. Because RDoc doesn't want to risk
  destroying any of your existing files, you'll need to
  specify a different output directory name (using the
  --op <dir> option).


  run with --debug for full backtrace
  make: *** [rdoc] Error 1


Because of this, "make" itself also fails now.  It really disturbs
other developers.  Please check (and fix) ASAP.
