In fact, the man pages seem to be being built correctly. The problem is
when the pdf files are being built.

I made a test to get some more conclusions: after the problem, I went to
/tmp/SBo/owncloud-client-2.4.2/build as root, run "make help" and got
some targets to test. I tested some of them, and these ones have run

  make doc-man
  make doc-html
  make doc-latex
  make doc-dev

but this specific one gave me the error we're telling about:

  make doc-pdf

I have to recognize that one phrase of mine in the last email is bad
worded and may be wrong: I made the assumption that one line in the file
/tmp/SBo/owncloudclient-2.4.2/build/doc/latex/Makefile pointed to
Sphinx, but I should be more careful, telling that that line was a
comment in the header. What could be understood as a truth is actually
only a suposition and maybe a hint. Whether Sphinx is related to the
problem, is actually matter of discussion.

One thing to check in your working environment, if possible, is the
result of the command "make doc" when it is executed in the directory
/tmp/SBo/owncloudclient-2.4.2/build. Assuming that it will work, I would
also be interested in the result of "make doc-pdf". I'd like even more
to get a "verbose log" of this run, but I am not aware of a way to do it
with cmake-generated Makefiles (like running "make V=1", which works for
the Linux kernel and some other packages).

Many thanks,
