It sure is...  told you I was missing something.

I really do not like --disable-doc being the default for releases so I 
was hopeful there was something we could utilize to distinguish between 
git and release sources.  However, on further investigation, I can not 
see anything in configure.ac that is suitable.  Adding anything would 
require an extra step for release so I am not really sure what to do.
