Makefile.am.gtk-doc doesn't say that, how are we supposed to know?

make distcheck fails because it (at least the version of autoconf that I
was using...) does chmod a-w on _build/ and the original
invocation of gtk-doc tries to modify the files within _build/, fails
and distcheck complains loudly.

Consider yourself kicked. :)

Behdad, the build system is truly one of the best I've had the opportunity
to use, thanks and I'm sorry for tarnishing it.
