meson: Make doc building dependent on gtk-doc

Currently, when gtk-doc is not installed 'ninja' succeeds but
'ninja install' fails with the following error:

   FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'gtkdoc-scan': 'gtkdoc-scan'

With this patch 'meson build' will log that documentations would not
build and 'ninja install' will succeed.

When forcing building docs with 'meson -Dbuild_docs=true build' the
following error will occur instead: ERROR:  Dependency "gtk-doc" not found, tried pkgconfig and cmake
