As Rob wrote, munge-texi is a C++ program that does a bit of manipulation
on the raw .txi files to transform them into .texi files capable of being
processed by Texinfo.

The problem is with one or both of the DOCSTRINGS files mentioned on the
command line.  To regenerate, start at the top-level of the code tree.

cd src/
cd ../scripts/
cd ..
make all

Take a look at the DOCSTRINGS files after regeneration.  They shouldn't be
empty.  If building the documentation still fails, then file a bug report
on the Octave bug tracker and attach whatever DOCSTRINGS files were generated.
