Wrong, you want to be in the top of the kernel source tree, not in the
Documentation/DocBook subdir.

cd /path/to/your/kernel/source
make pdfdocs

you can also make docs in other formats, try running "make help" and
you'll see this :

Documentation targets:
Linux kernel internal documentation in different formats:
sgmldocs (SGML), psdocs (Postscript), pdfdocs (PDF)
htmldocs (HTML), mandocs (man pages, use installmandocs to install)
