By the way, this particular error is now fixed in scrollkeeper (not
substituting ${prefix} at the right moment). It will be in the new
release in a couple of weeks.

You probably want to copy the makefile fragments omf.make and
xmldocs.make from gnome-common/doc-build. They are the most up-to-date
(and allegedly bug-free) versions of the docs build stuff we have. I
cannot remember if the exact problem you are seeing are fixed by those,
but I fixed a number of build and distcheck bugs in them.

You can just copy the fragments into whichever directory you like and
then incorporate them into the normal docs build.
