 (Luk, sorry for not responding earlier, I thought this was a reminder
 bug report, but it was a real mail.)

 Steve, thanks for the reminder.

 I've uploaded a package which stops building the doc under arm and

 I'm not interested in investigating the issue of building the
 documentation under arm because:
 - upstream have made local changes to the gtk-doc infrastructure after
   the bootstrapping instead of fixing gtk-doc to suite their needs, I'm
   not interested in chasing bugs they might have introduced under arm
   in this process
 - the doc is arch: all, so it would only matter for people preparing
   uploads under arm
 - the doc is painfully slow to build anyway, so it makes sense to not
   build it under arm, even if it would work
 - I'm not even sure the HTML files are not a form of modification
   convenient enough for us; the doc build system has caused too much
   headache in the past (an infinite loop in jade comes to mind)
