allmakefiles.sh docs here (or on a separate page) too. Some wise words from timeless in the meantime:
<timeless> allmakefiles.sh is a shim to make things faster by doing things up front <timeless> we have a rule that says if DIRS = foo, then make sure foo/Makefile exists <timeless> and foo/Makefile depends on foo/Makefile.in <timeless> so we'll regenerate feeds/Makefile from the components/Makefile <timeless> things *should* be in allmakefiles <timeless> but they can get away w/ not being :(

See bug 78081. Should documentation cover both 1.8 and 1.9?
