[docs] [issue18384] Add devhelp build instructions to the documentation makefile

New submission from Balthazar Rouberol:

The documentation makefile is missing support for Devhelp.

The supplied patch fixes this for the Python 3 branch.
It also edits the ouput of the sphinx build to change the name of the devhelp project.

This is needed to be able to have both versions of documentation (py2 & py3) displayed in Devhelp. This is useful if developers need to access documentation for both versions, such as both maintaining a Python2 project and starting a new project in Python3.

This has been patched in some distributions downstream, but would be nice to have patched upstream. See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/devhelp/+bug/787039
