Should it be automatically generated for any build or conditional?

...and I was thinking about adding a check for doxygen in the configure
script too.

It seems to me like it should be conditional, since relatively few users would
use it, and as you note, doxygen is a requirement that will usually not be
satisfied.

Should all directories be included in the generated documentation?

Specifically I'm thinking about kpathsea, readline, and the like which
aren't really Octave source.

The readline and kpathsearch sources are no longer distributed with
Octave.

When I suggested adding the commands to the Makefile, I was thinking
of adding a separate target for generating the files.  It would not be
a dependency of "all", so it would not be built by default.  It would
only be necessary to add something to the configure script if you
decided that finding the name or location of the doxygen program
needed to be done automatically.  Since the rule would be optional in
the Makefile anyway, I don't think it would be necessary.
