While the above was sufficient in the previous version, this is no longer
the case with v1.0.27.  The "sane.ind:" target in "${WRKSRC}doc/Makefile"
expects to run $(LATEX) first, then run $(MAKEINDEX) on it, thus the

Forcing MAKEINDEX to "no" with:

  CONFIGURE_ENV+=         ac_cv_path_MAKEINDEX="no"

makes it work.  The various options for building API_SPEC documentation
all presume some subset of TeX tools available.  The value of MAKEINDEX
is the only thing that is common to all decision branches.

I just completed a test build with the above variable set in
"sane-backends/Makefile.common" and the build succeeded.
