autogen.sh *expects* gtk-doc-tools to be installed:

./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/network/webkit  --enable-gtk-doc=no
Warning: not running gtk-docize.
configure.ac:81: installing `autotools/compile'
configure.ac:21: installing `autotools/config.guess'
configure.ac:21: installing `autotools/config.sub'
configure.ac:41: installing `autotools/install-sh'
configure.ac:41: installing `autotools/missing'
automake: cannot open < gtk-doc.make: No such file or directory

but this is not a developer's machine. i also don't use gnome and stuff and really have no other reason than webkit-nightly for installing gtk-doc-tools.

I deleted the four lines with gtk-doc-related stuff:

GNUmakefile.am:512:	$(srcdir)/gtk-doc.make \
GNUmakefile.am:522:	$(srcdir)/WebKit/gtk/docs/webkitgtk-docs.sgml \
WebKit/gtk/docs/GNUmakefile.am:93:include $(top_srcdir)/gtk-doc.make

autogen.sh worked but the next error was:

make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/WebKit-r55959/JavaScriptCore'
( xcodebuild -target All `perl -I../WebKitTools/Scripts -Mwebkitdirs -e 'print XcodeOptionString()'`  | grep -v setenv && exit ${PIPESTATUS[0]} )
/bin/sh: Syntax error: Bad substitution
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/WebKit-r55959/JavaScriptCore'
make: *** [all] Error 2

i don't see a relation to gtk-doc in the commandline but am in no way shure of it.

please, there is a need for regular releases. i, for my part, will otherwise definetly stay with firefox and ignore midori, gimp-help and friends...
