devhelp and jhbuild

When I started to use jhbuild I resolved to not compile a whole new
Gnome desktop because my work laptop is too slow and freeze easily: I
had to reduce the dependencies at minimum and try reuse the libraries
already provided by my distro (Ubuntu by the way).

The first trouble I had was to have access to the gtk-doc API
documentation through the installed devhelp. The solution is simply,
but not obvious (at least for me):

Append in ~/.profile

XDG_DATA_DIRS="${XDG_DATA_DIRS}":/opt/jhbuild/share

export XDG_DATA_DIRS

Well, you know you’ve to change the path to your jhbuild deployment
directory
