alternatively, adding:
DOC_DIRS="${DOC_DIRS[@]},foo,bar,baz" inside the build() function
might work too... untested, but it should work in theory....

The rationale here being that it makes it easy to set the "keepdocs"
option without changing the PKGBUILD really, when compared to a "rm
-rf $startdir/blah/blah".
