So the documentation builds fine for you?  I believed the FreeBSD
builders failed only because the they always try to build the
documentation as well, while that might not be the part of the
standard validation pass.

I can help with this, you do not have to struggle with FreeBSD just
because of this -- just send me the patch to try.  However, I think
this may not be fully an operating system-related issue, perhaps the
documentation toolchain is not up-to-date enough.  For example, I have
this version of the latex command installed currently:

pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.15 (Web2C 2014)
kpathsea version 6.2.0
Compiled with libpng 1.6.16; using libpng 1.6.16
Compiled with zlib 1.2.3; using zlib 1.2.3
Compiled with xpdf version 3.03
