Re: [PATCH v2 1/2] Allow building without gtk-doc installed

Hi Lubomir,

This doesn't look good to me. is a maintainer tool and we pretty much always want to
create tarballs with GTK-doc.

Why don't you just use autoreconf (with -f and -i) instead of when doing builds off Git?
Thanks for the tip, but it actually does not work as there is a dependency (as I reported
it before):
$ autoreconf -f -i
docs/api/ error: ENABLE_GTK_DOC does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
automake: error: cannot open < gtk-doc.make: No such file or directory
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

I know this is minor / unimportant issue as not many people will build without GTK-doc.
But still I'd prefer either to require it (to explain user what's wrong - first version of
my patch) or better allow build without it and just warn user (second version of the
patch; there might be better way of doing it than my quirks).

Kind regards,
