This has indeed been the problem and is hopefully fixed by now.
However, the question remains what exactly the use of the variable
NO_HADDOCK_DOCS is if it can be set to yes and haddock is still
called at least once it in the libraries dir (I think to create
the file index.html). Could you perhaps explain the intention behind
the NO_HADDOCK_DOCS variable?
