I am trying to build the docs so I can contribute (remove or fix broken links #27), but I cannot build the spec_guide.

I have installed jekyll (and run it once to build any required pages), and have the Rubygems source and rdoc installed.

However, rake spec_guide is missing a jekdoc template file. Not sure what to do now.

Parsing sources...
100% [ 1/ 1]  ../rubygems/lib/rubygems/specification.rb                         

Generating Darkfish format into /Users/testuser/Source/guides/html...
rake aborted!
error generating Gem.html: No such file or directory - /Users/testuser/Source/guides/rdoc/generator/template/jekdoc/_head.rhtml (Errno::ENOENT)

Tasks: TOP => spec_guide => rdoc_spec => html/index.html
(See full trace by running task with --trace)

Finally got around to fixing this today. The issue was that current rdoc expects to see the magic string "<html" in the template, otherwise it insists on looking for header and footer files to wrap around it.
