Fixing of-optim

The of-optim package fails with:

invalid doc file format
make: *** [../doc/optim.texi] Error 25

This looks like an error extracting documentation from the code files. There is a bootstrap script in the src/ directory. But this bootstrap just does the same ‘make doc’, leading to the same error.
Looking further inside, it seems the problem is is identifying all the files as invalid, perhaps its validity test is incorrect. I have added a patch to remove the validity test and the documentation extraction appears to work from the command line.
Fixed in build 46.
