yep, gnome-common currently doesn't support automake 1.13. For more information, see

I think the easier solution, for now, is to add automake-1-12 as makedependency. It works just fine.

You're right, gtk-doc is missing as make dependency, as well as gnome-common.
I don't get why the leading slash should be removed: I've read many PKGBUILDs of Gnome packages in the extra repository, but none of them is without the leading slash. I think that the error is in the wiki (no updates for a lot of months).
However, even after adding the new make dependencies, I can't compile the package. What about you?
I get an error with automake because of a bug of automake 1.13, which can be temporarily fixed by adding:
before running ./autogen
To compile, evince still requires newer versions of some packages, including gtk3 >= 3.7.5, but the version currently present in testing is 3.6.4 and gtk3-git has been flagged out-of-date.

missing makedependency: gtk-doc

error in install file: remove leading '/' from parameters, as it should be 'usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas' and 'usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas'

You are right, I've modified the PKGBUILD. I didn't notice it because yelp-tools was already installed on my system.

It seems like yelp-tools is also a make dependency... PKGBUILD should be updated accordingly
