Bug#285806: Can't build dpkg on a non-debian linux system without "--without-sgml-doc" configure argument

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.25

When trying to install dpkg on a non-debian (linux) system, make
failed due to a missing dependency ("debiandoc2html"). However, this
dependency is not listed on the package page.

I suggest that debiandoc2html be listed as an optional dependency, and
that the workaround (using the configure flag "--without-sgml-doc") be
added to the installation instructions as a suggestion.
