When I type 'make', then 'make install', autogsdoc is run during 'make

1. I don't know why it should fail ... but again that's a reason for as bug
report and a fix.
2. If it's run unnecessarily (and I think it probably is), that's a bug in the
makefiles package, and again we should fix it.  Probably just a case of
having make check all the source/headers against a timestamp of the
last run of document generation.

Yes ... I looked at it and it seemed easy to fix, so I did it ... saves a few
seconds on installation, which is very nice even though I wasn't really
bothered by the delay anyway.
