pdf documents won't build

I got the tarball for guile-1.6.8 and ran configure at the top level.  I
did this solely to get the documentation.

When I do make pdf from the top, I get (excerpt)
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/tools/guile-1.6.8/doc'
Making pdf in ref
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/tools/guile-1.6.8/doc/ref'

It looks as if maybe some other stuff needs to be built first, and the
Makefile isn't picking up on it.

I'm on a Debian GNU/Linux system; it is unlikely I currently have all
packages installed that would be needed for a full build.  The tarball
is the original one, with no Debian modifications.

I posted this to guile-user a few days ago.  Someone sent me prebuilt
docs (for 1.8 actually, which isn't the one I'm using), along with the
information that they built their docs on MS-Windows and could not build
them under Linux.  That's been the only response, so I figured this
might be a real bug and am filing this report.

I'm a bit surprised you don't have people enter bugs in the bug tracker;
the BUGS file said to send an email like this.
