I mentioned this to the folks updating it, and they said it was OK to
commit a fix, but I haven't gotten there yet.  Oops.

--disable-gtk-doc turns off that check.  It's not needed to compile the
software (or shouldn't be).  Plus, the checks that most packages have
for a specific version of gtk-doc are broken.  It will find a new enough
gtk-doc, even if an older one is installed.  Rats.

You have an old copy or something.  scrollkeeper is mentioned on mine
under "GNOME 2.0 Core applications platform".  It's listed as a
dependancy for nautilus, which is only half the story.  I don't think
nautilus requires it anymore, and any application that installs
user-visible documentation will require it by the time GNOME 2.0 ships.

I think this one should get filed at, and marked with
a GNOME 2 keyword.  (mind you, I'd have to go look up what the exact
keywords are, but this one definately needs to get fixed)

configure --disable-gtk-doc will make that go away.

I agree, but I haven't been able to figure out what the actual
requirements are, so that I can file a useful bug.

Yeah, looks to be missing...
