I don't think anything special needs to be done upstream now: I've changed
the Debian packaging to refresh the gtk-doc files before build, which
(if accepted by the libidn Debian maintainers) will decouple libidn from
the version of gtk-doc used when the upstream release was prepared. This is
a bit better from the point of view of ensuring Debian is self-contained
and built from "the real source code" anyway.
For future libidn releases, it might be helpful to other downstream
distributions if you could prepare the release (make dist) on a system
with gtk-doc-tools >= 1.26.
