It refers to the 'tools' subdirectory in the Doc directory, but that doesn't exist unless you've built the docs with 'make' before, or done a 'make checkout'.

Presumably you have sphinx installed on your system separately, and that's why you were able to run the command without having done the checkout.  This will most work fine I think, though occasionally differences between the system sphinx version and the version the checkout is using will cause issues.

Yes, the devguide should be updated to explain how one gets a 'tools' directory.
