Comment (by Chris Johns):

 Sphinx provides a `Makefile` in the build directory and this uses
 `latexmk` to create the PDF. I have seen posts from sphinx developers
 stating the `Makefile` should be used when building a PDF.

 Sphinx 1.8 and later references `\spxpagem` which is provided in a support
 file called `sphinx.xdy`. The `Makefile` references this file in the
 `xindy` options:
 export XINDYOPTS = -L english -C utf8  -M sphinx.xdy
 The issue on FreeBSD with `texlive-full-20150521` is the lack of the
 `xindy` command:
 $ type xindy
 xindy: not found
 And `latexmk` expects it to exist.
