That's for someone else, then.  But something like --with-doc=man
or better --without-doc=[all]|info (examples?) is i think also
possible with autotools (and can be deduced from m4/ stuff).

I'm willing to get that done due to purely selfish reasons (though
i really start from scratch, i.e., need some time), but what
should be (and what actually can be) optional and what should be
the actual syntax must be common sense of yours.
