These can remain commented out. They are only necessary for the code package 
and require the .m4 files that Joachim put into bibletime/. They check for

They shouldn't be. But you could try copying those files to bibletime-doc, 
uncommenting the lines and try again.

Yea. Good idea.
We must solve this issue before we can put forth a release!!
