This isn't quite correct. A lot of packages use the from
the gtk-doc examples/ directory, which only (and by default) runs
gtk-doc if you have it installed.  Unfortunately, it is this "auto" mode
that is going to break (gtk+ has tweaked things so that 'auto' == 'no'
which is why you aren't seeing this, Owen). So we need a release and
maybe fix the example as well -- I have a couple of tweaks in the docs
and examples area that I'll send to the gtk-doc list.


Two wrongs are only the beginning.
