Just confirming that from a clean sources dir, copying the system gnome-
doc-utils.make into $top_srcdir and running a build, supplying
 --without-gnome-doc-help as originally suggested, works.

I'm still lacking scrollkeeper as a dependency to build with help.  Seems 
the one gnome-doc-utils installed was scrollkeeper-dtd, and I now need 
scrollkeeper itself.  But at least I can build without the help, now, 
even if I have to manually copy the named *.make file in to do so.

And scrollkeeper pulls in rarian, so now the two deps to build help has 
just become four!  But I don't WANT gnome installed!  Why does it seem 
I'm being dragged into it piece by piece anyway?  I think it's safe to 
say I'm going to do without help, for now.  Which means we need to figure 
out how to keep gnome-doc-utils from being required for automake, before 
configure is even run.
