I think it's not an oversight; maybe it's a feature?  If you installed GNU 
Radio via MacPorts' "gnuradio" port (or "gnuradio-*"), you need to do "sudo 
port install gnuradio +docs" to get the docs.  I made them separate because not 
everyone wants them & they do take extra time to be created.

You (or someone) need to install "doxygen" to get documentation.  Looks like 
GNU Radio's build system auto-magically, and quietly, disables documentation if 
doxygen isn't available (meaning, 'configure' says it cannot find doxygen but 
'docs' is still enabled in the list of components to be build; the disabling 
comes when it is time to actually build the docs).  This should probably be 
fixed, since it is confusing.

It's very straight forward to get documentation on OSX using MacPorts:

   sudo port install doxygen

then re-run configure & make if you're building from GIT.  Hope this helps! -
