Description Pierre 2015-09-17 10:25:46 EDT
Description of problem:
gtkdoc-mkpdf fails to build pdf documents with message
"dblatex or fop must be installed to use gtkdoc-mkpdf."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a product which is willing to generate some gtk-doc-enabled documentation (e.g. nautilus-actions in my case)
2. Configure it with --enable-gtk-doc-pdf option.
3. make

Actual results:
"dblatex or fop must be installed to use gtkdoc-mkpdf."

Expected results:
DF documents are built with dblatex.

Additional info:
It appears that gtkdoc-mkpdf script is built when generating the package from gtkdoc-mkpdf.in, and so embeds @DBLATEX@ or @FOP@ from build system, instead of those of the running system.
Which appears to me to be bad.
