Before we overengineer I tend to agree with the just-use-a-glob path, 
considering that exactly zero new languages were added to customizations 
since the splitting of kdelibs. sq was the last one, added almost 10 years 
ago (without hooking it properly up, the ones before that are from 2009), 
so in restrospect one would not be screwed by a GLOB if one had kept an 
un-reconfigured kdoctools build dir over the last 10 years...

Anyway, this discussion should probably happen in a MR. For now I kept it 
small and simple so that it can possibly get included in a respin of 
5.83.0, which coincidentally is the version current master of kturtle 
depends on, to make sure the docs can be built with Gear 21.08:
