I use cron to build the whole web site and docs daily.
As remko said, make sure you have the textproc/docproj port installed.
Assuming you have that (since you are able to build from the shell), the
only other thing that comes to mind is cron's environment vs your
interactive user environment.
At a minimum I would add the PATH statement of your ~/.profile as the
first line on the script. Quite possibly everything under /usr/local is
unknown to your script when run from cron.
