The (commented-out) stanza

@DX_DOCDIR@/@PACKAGE@.tag: $(DX_CONFIG) $(pkginclude_HEADERS)
rm -rf @DX_DOCDIR@
$(DX_ENV) $(DX_DOXYGEN) $(srcdir)/$(DX_CONFIG)

in ax_prog_doxygen.m4 should have an extra final line,

echo Timestamp > $@

Without this, doxygen is run repeatedly, once for each target that depends on @DX_DOCDIR@/@PACKAGE@.tag, of which there can in general be many: once for each man page, once for the PDF docs, once for the HTML docs, etc. Doxygen is also run, unnecessarily, at "make install" time, which is inappropriate.
