Last night Troy added the file to SVN.  Ends up no changes are
necessary for the Makefile.am system, only with his personal script to
create release tarballs.  So from here on out there should be a
Doxyfile included in the release.  I don't know if he added a
Copyright to the file or not.

I just used the version of Doxygen that is on the CrossWire server.
Ideally that should be updated to a newer version if there is a
Doxyfile change.  As for the SHORT_NAMES, I don't know exactly what
that is fixing, but submitting a patch for Troy or someone else to
apply to the VCS version of the file should fix the issue.

All the warnings I saw were related to missing or incorrectly
documented elements in the source code.  If you see other warnings,
I'm not sure where they came from.
