Which seems to be the thorniest problem. It's one thing to identify
which sphinx versions work, and another to figure out which of the
metric boatload of TeX packages are needed.
On a fresh Fedora 26 install I was able to get "make pdfdocs" to build
(hurrah!) after adding
which ended up installing about 160 RPMs. Figuring out the right
texlive parts wasn't much fun; footnote.sty is well-hidden in
texlive-mdwtools, for instance, and without texlive-babel-english the
build failed with very mysterious errors in userspace-api.
