I have started to understand the PDF build issue. Sphinx creates a GNU make
Makefile in the latex directory that is to be used to build the PDF. The one I
see being created by sphinx-build 1.8 uses 'latexmk' to build the PDF.

The 'latexml' command internally calls 'xindy'. In my playing around I switched
to using 'xelatex' builder so I am not sure if this is resulting in 'xindy'
being used rather than 'makeindex'. I doubt it is related. The Makefile contains
flags for 'xindy' including a sphinx specific file.

The problem I am now facing is 'xindy' is not installed as a command with
texlive on FreeBSD. I am not yet sure if this is normal for FreeBSD or a
packaging issue. The packaged and installed 'latexmk' expects it to exist.

The target .sty files listed are not in my install. I am not sure what is
happening here.

Do you have `xindy` as a command in your path? Is it installed as part of
texlive, if not which package?
