My preference is to do what GNUstep seems to do in similar external
optional dependency cases - use configure to detect (although the makefiles
might be able to do this at runtime instead) and if the required components
are not in place, don't build the documentation.

Everyone testing who has TeX installed, for example, would automatically
test the build environment, those who don't, won't. 

(who has a fear of creeping dependencies and is now downloading about 11Mb
of tetex sources down a noisy modem line, sigh)
