Use yelp-tools instead of gnome-doc-utils.

Nice, thanks for that!

Looks pretty straight-forward and yelp-tools is already in GNOME 3.4.

Not on my machine, there should be added some checking, otherwise you'll end like this:
    * Configuring... (evolution)
     yelp.m4 not found
   ***Error***: some autoconf macros required to build Evolution
     were not found in your aclocal path, or some forbidden
     macros were found.  Perhaps you need to adjust your
Comment 3 Milan Crha 2012-08-13 06:52:40 UTC
And after I installed yelp-tools, I got also:
   configure: error: itstool not found
Comment 4 Fabien Tassin 2012-08-13 10:21:22 UTC
@mcrha: fyi, in debian/ubuntu, itstool is a dependency of yelp-tools.

$ apt-cache show yelp-tools | grep Depends
Depends: xsltproc, libxml2-utils, itstool

But I agree with #c2, a test for yelp.m4 is welcome.
Without it, I ended up with a build failure saying 'missing separator' in help/Makefile, and it was the unsubstituted YELP m4 macro. It should have aborted much earlier in configure.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2012-08-13 10:58:24 UTC already has the YELP_HELP_INIT macro, which is as much checking as we ever had for gnome-doc-utils.  Don't know what else to add.

I think yelp-tools just needs more time to become as universal as gnome-doc-utils once was.
