If I remember correctly, this occurs at a fairly late stage of building 
the docs, so you should have all the manual pages available on your 
machine already.

I can reproduce the above on my machine, but don't know what is causing 
the problem. Satish, does this look familiar to you, since it's 
presumably related to adding PETSc version, date, and canonical URL info?
