Thank you for helping packaging oath-toolkit!  Whether to build from
tarballs or version controlled sources, and whether to attempt to
re-bootstrap the sources using autoreconf or not, can be controversial
decisions in some projects.  I don't care strongly, but right now
gtk-doc is optional for tarballs but required when building from
sources.  Improving that is welcome, but IMHO should be done through the
gtk-doc-tools project so we don't introduce a new set of bugs.
