Let's see if I can manage to review patches before pulling them into the
repository this time...

I didn't find anything either.  Sigh.  I'll ask on the texinfo list.

Weird, I'm using the same version.  The file glib-object.h is in
libglib2.0-dev, does it help to install that package?  If so, I would
consider it a bug in gtk-doc-tools, it should depend on that package.

I'll see if I can make a release now, so we can get the guile stuff out
there for others to test.
