FAM is not a GNOME project, so you should report this to the appropriate
maintainers (although it seems strange that removing a const declaration
is correct).

Well, yes and no. Some kind of working Docbook-SGML setup is
unfortunately still required for GNOME to build (because some package
build their documentation in the tarball and they still use the SGML
version of gtk-doc). However, getting the DocBook-SGML setup working is
traditionally done by peoples' distributions and comes by default. In
the case of LFS, you obviously have to do it yourself, but it's really
outside of GNOME's purview.

To be fair, there are a couple of things missing from that page of
requirements, including DocBook-SGML under the "external dependencies".
Also, it should mention scrollkeeper and there may be others. It is
always hard to know when to stop listing dependencies and when to assume
they are just going to be there by default, so some grey areas arise.
