fonts-conf.5 is not in CVS and can only be built with the docbook tools, 
so '--disable-doc' can't be used from CVS.  Perhaps that should be fixed.

The mystery here is that the configure script automatically selects 
'--disable-doc' if it can't find docbook2html, and it appears that this is 
happening on your sytem for some unknown reason.
