Not sure if any issue at all, but as said in title, starting with Sphinx 2.0 (Spring 2019), XeLaTeX will be configured to use by default GNU FreeFont, (see, and this means new dependency (for documentation builds on Ubuntu, package fonts-freefont-otf; for builds on Fedora 29 it is texlive-gnu-freefont).  Indeed currently CPython PDFs are built using ``xelatex``.
