Doc-build failure: pdfetex exit with bad status

On a fresh installation of Linux Mint (and previously of xubuntu, ubuntu, crunchbang, and ubuntulite) I can't get the docs to build properly. It's taking several "make doc" commands to get each of the pdf files to be written, and then when they appear they're missing all the images.  Here's the tail of the terminal output:

Output written on lilypond.pdf (453 pages, 1615070 bytes).
Transcript written on lilypond.log.
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: pdfetex exited with bad status, quitting.
make[1]: *** [out-www/lilypond.pdf] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jon/lilypond/Documentation/user'
make: *** [doc-stage-1] Error 2

Note that the lilypond.pdf file only has 453 pages, which is about 150 shy of what it should be.  On my regular working partition I run xubuntu 9.04 and everything works fine so I don't understand what's up here. Autogen ran successfully, without alerting me to any missing dependencies. "make all" built the lilypond binary successfully, it's just "make doc" that's not working right.
