Autoconf introduced a new feature for autoreconf in 2.70:

> *** autoreconf will now run gtkdocize and intltoolize when appropriate.

This has the side-effect of making the gtkdocize tool required unconditionally
even for projects that follow the official documentation
(Example 2-3):

# check for gtk-doc
m4_ifdef([GTK_DOC_CHECK], [
GTK_DOC_CHECK([1.14],[--flavour no-tmpl])

Projects that use this snippet nevertheless now fail to autoreconf properly
with the following error:

> Can't exec "gtkdocize": No such file or directory at
/usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 293.
> autoreconf: error: gtkdocize failed with exit status: 2

Ideally autoreconf should detect if GTK_DOC_CHECK is checked with m4_ifdef and
not require gtkdocize in this case. If thats too complex, possibly it could
never require gtkdocize and only warn if its missing but looks like it might
be needed?
