Why? Note that latex.ltx is already stripped, so you don't get the  
documented source anyway. Get the real thing from CTAN (i.e. the dtx  
files for the latex macro package) and typeset that.

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/base/ and get that whole  
directory, typeset all .dtx files and you probably get what you  
wanted in the first place.
