#532 closed defect (fixed)

./configure doesn't check for presence of xmlto, make fails when it isn't found

I just tried to do a build from latest bzr version and it failed making the docs when it got to trying to run 'xmlto' but I didn't have the program installed. Probably would be better if 'configure' checked for the presence of that and warned me ahead of time.

Thing is, releases come with prebuilt versions of user-guide and help.txt for this reason. That's what people usually compile. But adding a warning or something in case those files don't exist yet may be a good idea, yes.
