Seems that change in building HTML docs affected building debian 

###### build-indep
DOCS/HTML/en/index.html: debian/mplayer/usr/bin/mplayer
... comment out following line:
         #sh debian/all-lang-config-mak.sh > config.mak
         #$(MAKE) -C DOCS/xml html-chunked
... remove this: ^^^^^^^^^^^
         $(MAKE) html-chunked

This also makes debian/all-lang-config-mak.sh look unnecessary.

Also, making HTML documentation requires running ./configure first, 
which it didn't before.
Since mplayer is to be configured two times - with and without GUI, the 
configure is not a separate step, which means that we'll run ./configure 
once for HTML docs or we create them after either versions of mplayer 
were created.

well, the Debian build script needs much of tuning now.
