You should not need to add any header, it only needs the foo_get_type()
functions and they are (re)declared automatically in the source.

The first problem is that you use gtkdoc-scanobj instead of
gtkdoc-scangobj.  The former is for the old Gtk+ type system that is no
longer used (IIRC).

Then, gtkdoc-scangobj  builds and runs an inspection program.   You must
tell it how to do that by running it

CC=..  CFLAGS=..  LD=..  LDFLAGS=..  RUN=..  gtkdoc-scangobj

where the variables contain the right compiler, linker and their flags
to build a program using your library.  See the source of
gtkdoc-scangobj around line containing `Compiling scanner' if you want
to know how exactly are the variables used.
