Following some investigation, we discovered that Sphinx already includes linkchecker; we can run it manually by using the `make linkchecker` command the way we use the `make html` command. Adding linkchecker to all the makefiles in the repo will slow down our builds, but won't add value.

- sorry for the delay. The change you make should apply to all the makefiles in the edx-documentation repo.

why don't you go ahead and try your proposed solution on some or all of the makefiles in edx-documentation, and see if that does what you expect?

is this for all of edx-documentation? Are there additional repos we should be looking at, and/or are there parts of edx-documentation we should exclude?
