those are warnings from Doxygen I believe, and they are emitted only
when the documentation gets rebuilt. If you've already built once,
'make clean' followed my 'make' should fish them out.

Note, that what Bryce originally referred to are the generated headers
under protocol/ directory. The documentation for doxygen complaints
stemming from there need to be added into the corresponding .xml file.
Then wayland-scanner turns the XML into .h, and Doxygen reads the .h

Btw. it seems the recent addition of EXTRACT_ALL=YES in the Doxygen
configuration removed almost all warnings. You may want to hack that to
NO to see everything.
