Which Texlive version do you have?  I have Texlive 2007 on my box, and
it includes epsf.tex.  Maybe you need to upgrade to 2007 or rerun
Texlive setup to install the package providing epsf.tex.

Argument localedir is obviously missing in www_post invocation, which is
quite strange. from Git HEAD contains

$(PYTHON) $(buildscript-dir)/ $(PACKAGE_NAME) $(TOPLEVEL_VERSION) 
$(buildscript-dir) $(top-build-dir)/Documentation/po/$(outdir) $(outdir) 

Please check you have the same command line in GNUmakefile.  If it's OK,
then there might be a problem with $(top-build-dir); in the case you
have moved the source and build tree, make sure you have rerun

Please report any succesful or unsuccesful experience, so you can start
updating the docs ;-)

I use Fedora 7, which comes with Python 2.5, and build the docs almost
every day, so Python version is certainly not a problem.
