[docs] [issue34293] DOC: Makefile inherits a Sphinx 1.5 bug regarding PAPER envvar
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from jfbu <jfbu at free.fr>:
There has been a bug at Sphinx since release 1.5 https://github.com/sphinx-doc/sphinx/issues/5234 about wrong handling of PAPER environment variable. The Makefile in Doc/ reproduces the error. As a result the "A4 latex" and "letter latex" sub targets of "dist" mis-behave.
A bugfix will be released at Sphinx 1.7.7 or 1.8 but the CPython Doc/Makefile needs an update, because the bugfix can only solve problems for new projects created with sphinx-quickstart (whether or not using the "make-mode" small Makefile, or the "no-make-mode" bigger Makefile which was default up to Sphinx 1.5).
I will send PR next.
