Since the documentation can be packaged and distributed separately
from the main CMake installation I see no reason to go through the
trouble of de-duplicating installation of these sources.  In the
future we may compile the Help/ resources into some kind of database
that gets installed so that we can do more --help-variable command
line work.  At that point the Sphinx-generated docs won't be able
to reference them.  IMO this is premature optimization.
