Thanks for the update.
The reason for the CONFIGPARMS was to give the end user an easier way of
cutting and pasting all the optional parameters during the build. Maybe
the single option --enable-gtk-doc didn't show the benefit. I've
attached a libgtop example which has a few more optional parameters.
Let me know if there is a benefit in doing it this way or not. If there
isn't then I won't do it anymore.
