What repository are you using?  What is the *exact* error?  I'm only
building the docs as `giorgos' here, which isn't `root'.

Try running script(1) to log everything in a file:

: # script /tmp/giorgos.log
: Script started, output file is /tmp/giorgos.log
: #

At this shell prompt, type everything you do to build the docs, as long
as `env' to let me see what your shell environment contains:

: # env
: [lots of output]

Then after the doc build fails (if it does fail), exit the shell.

: # exit
: exit
: Script done, output file is /tmp/giorgos.log

and post the file `/tmp/giorgos.log' to me.
