I think some ports have split the docs into their own port, e.g., gimp. 
Is that a reasonable approach here? The fact that a lot of the gnome 
stuff A) makes docs by default, B) with no option to turn it off, which 
C) pulls in a ton of docbook and other deps; is not something I'm fond 
of, and would prefer to not see repeated elsewhere. :)
