It's rather easy if you're on Windows (just make sure 
VBOX_WITH_DOCS_CHM=1 isn't overridden by AutoConfig.kmk or 
LocalConfig.kmk). It's the default setting, so I don't think this is an 
issue. Building the documentation must be enabled, but as you get the 
PDF that's a non-issue.

You need to point VBOX_PATH_HTML_HELP_WORKSHOP to the directory of 
hhc.exe (from MS HTML Help Workshop), and the rest should be smooth sailing.

If you're on Linux you might be lucky with WINE, but if my memory 
doesn't fool me it's a complete nightmare to get hhc.exe working.
