Comment(by ken@…):

 Odd, my log is quite different at this point.
 checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
 checking whether build environment is sane... yes
 checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
 checking for gawk... gawk
 checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
 checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
 checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
 checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
 checking for style of include used by make... GNU
 checking for gcc... gcc
 checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
 Strange. In what you pasted, the error message is not associated with any
 'checking' message.  In my log, there is no reference to gnome-doc-utils.
 The only not-immediately-obvious test I can see in the log is for
 TEST_DEPS almost at the end, which the configure script shows as glib-2.0
 and gobject-2.0 both >= 2.6.0.  BUT, I can confirm the problem.

 Further examination of the configure script shows the test which gave you
 this result, at line 2626.  I didn't spot it because the configure script
 is unusual for (at least) this one test: ther is NO preliminary message
 about what it is testing, and if the test passes it does so in silence and
 nobody is any the wiser about the requirement. Please report this to
 upstream (I'm sure they would appreciate a patch to fix configure and

 Thanks for this report.
