Is there a workaround for python2? The issue is that autotools is checking that installed tools support --help and --version and it expects those to stdout:

bad=0; pid=$$; list="gtkdoc-check gtkdoc-depscan gtkdoc-fixxref gtkdoc-mkdb gtkdoc-mkhtml gtkdoc-mkhtml2 gtkdoc-mkman gtkdoc-mkpdf gtkdoc-rebase gtkdoc-scan gtkdoc-scangobj gtkdocize"; for p in $list; do \
  case '  ' in \
   *" $p "* | *" ../../$p "*) continue;; \
  esac; \
  f=`echo "$p" | sed 's,^.*/,,;s,x,x,'`; \
  for opt in --help --version; do \
    if "/home/ensonic/projects/gnome/gtk-doc/gtk-doc-1.27.1/_inst/bin/$f" $opt >c${pid}_.out \
         2>c${pid}_.err </dev/null \
	 && test -n "`cat c${pid}_.out`" \
	 && test -z "`cat c${pid}_.err`"; then :; \
    else echo "$f does not support $opt" 1>&2; bad=1; fi; \
  done; \
done; rm -f c${pid}_.???; exit $bad
