Since the intended purpose of "make dist" is to create distribution
tarballs, such as those published on FSF mirrors, it really wouldn't be
appropriate for it to do anything other than fail, if any distributable
component is missing; IMO, "--without-doc" should not apply to the "make
dist" goal.

If it's implemented using autoconf's AC_ARG_WITH macro, (as it should
be), that would be automatic.
