Hmm, building the doc completed without error messages, except the one
that the file ../conf.texi is not found (this one you also mention in 
the README file).
I used miktex 2.4 for build and I had to make sure that the miktex 
binaries are first in the PATH, otherwise the build fails.
I did not apply other changes, so maybe I encounter the same problems,
but since the documentation builds (the pdfs look ok) I did not care too 
much about it now.

How does this problem manifest in your case?
