Further research has determined that the libraries that have .luadoc

never been an issue. However, I still think they should be included,
since 1. they may provide them in the future, and 2. script authors
should be able to have documentation on their own system, even when
installing from a binary package.
Is there any reason that the .luadoc files (placeholder and
documentation for compiled-C NSE libraries) are not installed as part
of "make install"? I understand there could be some small disk savings
(68 KB at last count), but I think that having full documentation with
the installation makes more sense. In fact, doesn't Zenmap parse these
files for its script-args help text?
Unless there are objections, I will add these files to the install target.
