Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 So, here's the error:

 Making install in doc
 make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/libexif-0.6.13/doc'
 make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/libexif-0.6.13/doc'
 make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
 make[2]: *** No rule to make target `install-apidocs', needed by `install-
 data-local'.  Stop.
 make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/libexif-0.6.13/doc'

 What happens is that doc/Makefile.am is poorly written in that most of the
 rules are surrounded in `if HAVE_DOXYGEN`.  This results in the
 Makefile.in targets looking like this:

 @HAVE_DOXYGEN_TRUE at install-apidocs: $(HTML_APIDOC_DIR).stamp

 In the actual Makefile, if you don't have Doxygen, these turn to comments:

 {{{ #install-apidocs: $(HTML_APIDOC_DIR).stamp }}}

 Unfortunately, the `install-data-local` target is not part of the `if
 HAVE_DOXYGEN` set.  So, when you run `make install` without Doxygen, it
 chokes at `install-data-local` because there's an undefined target
 `install-apidocs` which is commented out.

 Solution: add `install-data-local` to the HAVE_DOXYGEN set with

 sed -i 's/^install-data-local/@HAVE_DOXYGEN_TRUE@&/' doc/Makefile.in
