See the CAN_BUILD_COMMENTS variable in doc/Makefile
The configure.ac sets that variable. I see it sets it to OFF if
you don't have imagemagick, for example, which is wrong.
We'd need more variables to determine if we can build comments
or manual (of different formats). Surely comments do not need
imagemagick (convert).

A ticket would be nice.
