Built documentation is not installed as autotools based build is used.
Quoting [1]
Exactly @tt4g. I would like the CMake build to do what's conventional for a CMake build, and the autotools build to do what's conventional for an autotools build.

But if there are no clear conventions, I'm not particularly motivated to make any chages here. There's things to be said for all three defaults: don't build the docs, or build them so you can read them locally but without installing them, or build and install them. I have no strong feelings about it, and I'm waiting for someone to give me a reason to care. :-)

Additional info:
* libpqxx 6.4.5-2

This task depends upon

PKGBUILD.diff.cmake switches to cmake which installs the documentation.
PKGBUILD.diff.autotools drops the makedepends on doxygen and xmlto as documentation will not be installed.
