[Rd] Checking R manual build

Is there a quick way of checking the R manuals built from the .texi files in ../doc/manual without building the rest of R?

Going from a vanilla checkout, some included files are missing (eg version.texi) and created by the makefiles, so it looks like the complete make script needs to be run at least once ... and then one has a number of make-generated changes to one's R sources to worry about in any subsequent diff. 

Is the only route to export the svn copy, build from the exported copy and then use texinfo to check the manual pages using the make-built includes and rules?
