That is correct but for building from git alone.

The distribution tarballs (should) provide all the auto-generated files,
similar to any other autotools project. As such one should not need any of
python/mako/lex/etc but a plain compiler toolchain.

Imho we should fix these in a way that, when the files are generated, all the
non-compiler requirements are non-fatal.

Although I cannot find a way to do that of the top of my head.

At the end it would be nice to update the doc :-)
