I cannot help with that. You should try to contact the PariEmacs
maintainer Olivier Ramare (AT math.univ-lille1.fr).

Apparently, your version of 'tex' defaults to AMS-TeX, which is wrong:
AMS-TeX will not compile our documentation, you must use Plain TeX.

1) What message does 'tex' produce in a terminal ?

2) Maybe 'pdftex' will work better ? You can try 'make docpdf'.

3) If the documentation can't be compiled due to a non-standard
installation, you can still download the PDF files from
