I think that the PDF is way too large. A lot of the documentation is for 
private (All classes starting with QGpgME are private) API and It is very 
repetitive as the Jobs all follow the same pattern. It would probably better 
to explain the pattern in general and then list the available Jobs and how to 
use them. I want to work on this with doxgen but I did not find the time yet

Requires Latex and we don't check for latex. yet :-). Also this would slow 
down the build further and I find the HTML documentation more useful as it's 
better interlinked.

The gentoo package maintainer requested that the doc is not built by default. 
I think if we add an explict configure option to enable the qt doc we could 
also then generate the pdf / check for latex.
