There is something wrong in your dependencies if make attempts
to rebuild the documentation even when it already exists.
Perhaps Doxyfile is a non-distributed build file?  See the
distcleancheck node of the manual for some discussion about
this kind of dependency and a possible workaround.

Hiding the bug instead of fixing it?  (It's a bug if the
documentation you distribute is always rebuilt when a user
attempt a VPATH build.  There is no point in distributing
the doc if users have to rebuild it anyway.)
