There is a command explaining how to build the documentation without using make:

    python tools/ -b<builder> . build/<outputdirectory>

It is unclear as to which directory the "tools" is referring to.  In the "Tools" directory of the main branch, there is no file.

On my system, I was able to do the build using sphinx-build as a bare command:

    sphinx-build -b<builder> . build/<outputdirectory>

I am not sure if this is system specific, but for someone building the documentation for the first time (as I was), this could be confusing.  Perhaps someone could explain whether the command that is currently written is obsolete or just differs by system.
