I think I heard somewhere that you have a kind of dummy gtk-doc to satisfy the
build deps. I wonder if we can fix this somehow better. Can you either ping me
in #gtkdoc (gimpnet-irc), write to gtk-doc mailing list or even to me in person
and describe the problem. Also let me know where I can look at the dummy package
that you are using.
