I think it is a good thing if packages are buildable as-is. But it is a
rule of thumb, since we really need cygwin-doc, it is a good thing to
have this package, htough it is not buildable with a standard cygwin
The problem with gtk-doc is that there is also a runtime dependecy to
jade/openjade. It is useless without Jade.
I'm thinking about putting together a package with an older jade
version. Older version are sufficient to use gtk-doc.
The best solution would be to have a complete docbook toolchain
