The reason for removing is the same as with the auto-generated swig
bindings. Both don't need the source package and can be generated from an
installed pacman binary package. 

Currently the generated html aren't included by an automake conditional in
as EXTRA_DIST. So I'm sure nobody will miss it. BTW: I think the only use for
them is: http://www.archlinux.org/pacman/pacman.8.html ;-)
