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