The apidox generation mechanism works on whole SVN modules, or, for 
kdesupport, on the sub-directories. There's one global script across all of 
KDE that generates a Doxyfile and uses that; you can fiddle around in 
Mainpage.dox to pass settings for Doxygen generation to the Doxyfile, but 
that's definitely under-documented. It depends a little on why you need a 
totally separate Doxyfile to begin with.
