--- Comment #1 from Andre Miranda <andreldm at xfce.org> ---
Passing --disable-gtk-doc to ./autogen.sh or ./configure or just omitting this
option yields:

checking for gtk-doc... yes
checking for gtkdoc-check... gtkdoc-check.test
checking for gtkdoc-check... /usr/bin/gtkdoc-check
checking for gtkdoc-rebase... /usr/bin/gtkdoc-rebase
checking for gtkdoc-mkpdf... /usr/bin/gtkdoc-mkpdf
checking whether to build gtk-doc documentation... no

And no documentation is built nor installed. Only when --enable-gtk-doc is
passed it yields:
checking whether to build gtk-doc documentation... yes

However, if you run make and rerun ./configure --disable-gtk-doc it'll be
ignored, only after make clean --disable-gtk-doc *and* --enable-gtk-doc will be
correctly evaluated again.

Looking at configure.ac.in's history, the gtk-doc support was disabled in 2015
[1] and I recently enabled[2] it after Skunnyk's improvements[3][4] to the docs
generation. The only difference between [1] and [2] is the "Compensate for
broken gtk-doc" part, but I think it's unrelated.

Well, my autotools skills are limited to say if the current behavior is broken
or not, IHMO requiring make clean to disable the docs is not exactly a bug, but
yes, it's a bit confusing.
