problem fixed.

Turned out I once inadvertedly did a build in the source tree, and  .texi files in the source tree interfered with built .texi files in the build tree. Removing the .texi files in the source tree fixed this

Btw. I see your HG ID is "93f455582f60+".  The plus means you made some changes right?  Can you try again with a clean repository?

Does it help to delete in your build directory the "../octave_50x/doc/interpreter" folder and run "make" again?  Recently I made changes, that might lead to corrupt "seealso", "xseealso" references.

For stable, HG-ID 93f455582f60+ (dev builds OK) I am getting multiple errors like this at the end of the build process. The first one is this:

  MAKEINFO ../octave_50x/doc/interpreter/octave.info
../octave_50x/doc/interpreter/intro.texi:656: unknown command `seealso'
../octave_50x/doc/interpreter/intro.texi:656: misplaced {
../octave_50x/doc/interpreter/intro.texi:656: misplaced }

the last 2 lines of intro.texi look like this:

@seealso{history, evalc}
@end deftypefn
