Is this on Linux? If so I recommend just using JHbuild (from git, not
your distro packages) to take care of the dependencies for you...
On Linux the docbook package contains the docbook dtd that it is looking
Looking at the gtk-doc configure and m4 files it looks for catalogues
via indirection through
but it also looks like you can specify the path to these catalogues or
the dtd directly, via configure args.
At first I though you might have been missing
but it looks like gtk-doc ships the gnome-doc-utils m4 file, so maybe
that isn't the problem after all.
