That's correct -- doc/doxygen-doc is in the source tree, but does not end up in the tarball.

Mmm... good point...

/me investigates

Ah, I see the issue. On OS X, this:

doit cp -rpf $srcdir/doc/doxygen-doc/ $distdir/doc

Does not actually copy the doxygen-doc directory to $distdir. If I remove the trailing slash, it works:

doit cp -rpf $srcdir/doc/doxygen-doc $distdir/doc

(i.e., doxygen-doc ends up in $distdir and distcheck works properly)

There's probably a reason for this, but I'm not too interested in tracking it down. I just removed the trailing slash...

I note that the OS X man page for cp says:

     Historic versions of the cp utility had a -r option. This implementation
     supports that option; however, its use is strongly discouraged, as it
     does not correctly copy special files, symbolic links, or fifo's.

Instead, the OS X cp supports -R (Linux cp does, too).

I guess we should be using something better than cp -r to copy the directory over -- perhaps tar?
