There is a problem with released versions (just tried it with
pari-2.4.3.alpha from the PARI/GP website) and it needs perl to build
the documentation.  So this is certainly a bug.

usersch3.tex is shipped, but if you don't ship src/desc/pari.desc (a
dependency of usersch3.tex in the Makefile), make will try to rebuild

make doc does the following:
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `../src/desc/pari.desc', needed by
`usersch3.tex'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jdemeyer/pari-2.4.3.alpha/doc'
make: *** [doc] Error 2
