Can we have a common way to enable GTK-Doc installation in modules
using CMake? In modules using Autotools, we have --enable-gtk-doc
which is recognized by every module supporting generating
documentation with GTK-Doc . However, we have two important modules
using CMake, Evolution (including Evolution-Data-Server) and
WebKitGTK+, but they require different options to enable GTK-Doc.

I agree that the consistency is "good to have". I chose the name to
stay as close to the one from autotools as possible. Similarly with
other offered configure options.

gtk-doc now ships a CMake module upstream:

I adapted this from existing code in the Firtree project:

It would be nice if Evo and WebKitGTK+ could switch to using that. It
may need some improvements; I used it successfully in a couple of
projects (proprietary ones, sadly) but I don't know how much use it
has had elsewhere.

Unfortunately, I do not recall what failed for me when I tried to use
it in the time I've been adding the functionality into the libical.
It's couple months ago, it's likely that the things changed on the
GtkDoc side meanwhile, I really didn't give it a try any time recently.

Similarly to WebKit, I currently do not plan to bump GtkDoc dependency,
but it doesn't mean I'm against it. As I begun above, the consistency
is good to have.
