I have examined your testcase, and it appears this is not issue with dependencies on
other projects, or some such. It's just the fact that doxygen support is not very
robust when you are building from the directory different from the one where the
'doxygen' rule is invoked. A couple of issues are:

1. Documentation is generated to 'pwd`/html -- not in the directory where doxygen
rule is invoked.

2. The input sources are wrong.

I've fixed (1) and will commit as soon as svn maintenance is over. Unfortunately,
(2) is a bit tricker to fix. I don't have an estimate when a fix will be available,
and suggest you file a bug and then build documentation from the same directory
where doxygen rule is invoked.
