On Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon":

Unfortunately I don't really know python, so am unable to debug this.

I checked out by doing

        svn co http://svn.python.org/projects/python/tags/r30a2 py3k

Then I built python itself with no apparent trouble.  But building the docs fails:

    make -k html
    mkdir -p build/html build/doctrees
    python2.5 tools/sphinx-build.py -bhtml -dbuild/doctrees  . build/html

When there's not many discoveries being made, there's nothing left to
do all day but witch-hunt the heretics.
