   Having configure barf for such things can be really annoying. It's
   nice to be able to check out the code and do things like autoreconf
   && ./configure && make doc, even if some specialized tool needed
   for actual compilation is missing on my system.

Well, the real problem is that the current configure ignores the
problem completly.  Would you be happy with changing the behaviour so
that configure will print a warning if the program is missing, and
then when trying to use the program, it would use automake's missing
script, and check its exit status.  If it is non-zero, it would barf
with a message noting that the program in question is missing.
