[New-bugs-announce] [issue9913] Misc/SpecialBuilds.txt is out of date

New submission from Alexander Belopolsky <belopolsky at users.sourceforge.net>:

It looks like Misc/SpecialBuilds.txt has not been updated since 2.4.

This file is referenced from C-API documentation [1], but is not accessible as a hyperlink.

Some of the recommendations in this file are out of date, in particular those that recommend setting make variables where a configure switch is available.

I believe it would be best to retire Misc/SpecialBuilds.txt and move still relevant sections to proper .rst files.
