I don't see how setting DEB_BUILD_DEPENDENCIES will help, since I'm
talking about install/libmath++-doc. In fact, I avoided running
doxygen in the build/libmath++-doc target, as I would have preferred
to, exactly because of this issue. And I also don't see how those
comments apply to the install/* targets.
If I follow the alternative of moving doxygen to Build-Depends, then
the autobuilders will unnecessarily install and run doxygen, so I'd
prefer to avoid this unless it's really necessary. (I already got a
message from the m68k buildd maintainer that said if I did this, he'd
file a bug complaining about it.)
Here's the debian/rules file from the libmath++ package. Maybe you
can tell me if I'm doing something wrong.

(BTW, is there a better way to get the autotools to be run before
configure is? Other than "don't run autotools in the package build"
-- I followed the debian-devel thread about that a while back and
remained thoroughly unconvinced.)
