Where does this script mkfuncdocs.py comes from?

At any rate, it would be great to include a Makefile for building the documentation from scratch.

Yeah once the functions.texi is created using mkfuncdocs.py, then it doesnt need python anymore.

Thanks for the commit.

I can build all forms of the documentation without Python, for instance:

Its required to generate the documentation, which is already generated in the released package unless someone patches a file.

In the DESCRIPTION file of the arduino package Python is declared
as a BuildRequirements. However, the package builds fine without Python.
