xubuntu-docs cannot be built: build-depends on gnome-doc-utils

Bug Description

xubuntu-docs still build-depends on gnome-doc-utils which was removed after bionic. Please either remove xubuntu-docs or make it build without gnome-doc-utils

Research shows gnome-doc-utils was added as build-depends in 11.10 to bring in xml2po. That allows for translations. Nothing appears to provide xml2po any longer with gnome-doc-utils gone. Private libraries cannot be depended upon in package building and there is no extant upstream of xml2po any longer.

How about including the xml2po program in the package source?

Otherwise I think yelp-tools provides all you need. ubuntu-docs and gnome-user-docs use that, and so did the serverguide project previously.
