 This really is not an issue with gimp but with gtk-doc which is a build
 dependency of gimp2 and probably a numer of its dependencies.

 dblatex (which depends on several texlive ports) is used by gtk-doc to
 provide API documentation in PDF format as opposed to HTML format
 (default).  PDF output is optional (and not used by many ports if any to
 my knowledge) and so the dblatex dependency can probably be removed but
 there is no switch in configure to absolutely disable PDF output -- it
 just enables PDF if dblatex (or alternatively fop) is available.

 I have no problem disabling PDF output by default but this will require a
 patch to configure.  I'll see if this works.
