I'm not the sysadmin and couldn't install packages without a request/delay, but during the build process the docs failed, get access to the completed product I had to disable the docs from building. I'm looking into what caused the issue. (they had dot installed but not graphviz, wonder if that had anything to do with it.)
Without knowing what failed and how it's difficult to say, but as you indicate it's most likely something in your environment that is missing. If we knew more about the error perhaps we could update configure to detect it.
