With doxygen-1.8.7, this was working fine. With 1.8.8, I get:
/tmp/dox/x.h:1: warning: unable to resolve reference to `ploum.' for \cite command

and the generated page indeed does not link to the bibliography.

I could 'solve' the problem with the latest snapshot from GitHub by adding

CITE_BIB_FILES = biblio.bib

to the config file. I'm sure you already did this.

Version 1.8.8 still shows the problem, so there was a problem with that release.

I'll use this report to further improve the warning in case CITE_BIB_FILES is empty.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in

bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant (preferrably in the form of a self-contained example).
