Right. The issue really has nothing to do with XSBuilder's doc generation,
since we don't use that at all.  What I'm wondering is whether or not we
should be using XSBuilder::ParseSource to parse the header files, when it 
appears that doxygen does a far better job (for instance, doxygen 
can preprocess and expand selected macros, whereas ParseSource, being P::RD
based, cannot).

Of course, with the workarounds in build/, we are able
to use XSBuilder::ParseSource successully right now, so I'm not going
to try and "fix" what isn't broken.  However, if something does break in
the future, or we really want to eliminate build/ from the
build system, then I suggest we look at doxgen's perlmods as a clean
replacement for XSBuilder::ParseSource.
