That's fine.  You don't need to be root to build or install the docs.

Do you mean you are building the documentation as root?  (When

PS: Your mailer claims that the message is encoded in US-ASCII, but your

to use the proper encoding for all the stuff it puts in mail headers, or
disable 8-bit characters in mail headers.  If this isn't possible,
perhaps there is a way to spell your name using US-ASCII characters
only (at least in mail headers)?
