I am trying to build a software stack compiling almost everything from source down to compilers, build tools etc.
In my dependency tree glib shows up in a pretty early stage (no GTK available yet). I don’t use meson, so I try to build the latest releases that can still be built with autotools (2.58.2 and 2.58.3). The build always fails with
482 automake: error: cannot open < gtk-doc.make: No such file or directory
483 autoreconf: error: automake failed with exit status: 1
Since GTK depends on glib I cannot build GTK before having built glib. I am not interested in building the documentation, as I really just want to build glib itself. How can I disable all the gtk-doc stuff such that the build does not always fail?
This is blocking me since more than two weeks from installing other packages that depend on glib.
Any help is appreciated.
