That is a completely different issue than the issue-report you are posting in.

issue 514 is along the lines of "I installed everything listed for a developer build in README.md and still could not build."

You, otoh want to make a "semi-developer build", run autoreconf but without full development toolkit. Afaict this probably broke with 535ba543e78338192ce40b501e1283130550a704 which switched from AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR to AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR*S*. And gtkdocize has this comment:
# If the AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR() macro is used, copy gtk-doc.m4 from our
# prefix to that directory.  This makes sure that the M4 macro used
# matches the the automake fragment.
# If AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR is not used, the macro won't be copied, and
# the correct flags must be passed to aclocal for it to find the macro.
