What are gnucash-docs' dependencies?

The reason that configure doesn't check for more than scrollkeeper and 
xsltproc where the README asks for more is twofold. First scrollkeeper 
is required for the installation of the docs themselves from the 
tarball. Xsltproc is require to translate the docs to html with the 
'make html' command. The second reason is that the README is listing 
yelp and a portion of yelp's toolchain as yelp is required to read the 
docs (not install). So its possible to install the docs without yelp, 
but not possible to install the docs without scrollkeeper. However to 
_read_ the docs you need yelp and its toolchain. This is why they differ.
