i wish i could help. but i'm just a user, not a developer, and i find
tinkering with make files and the rest is usually a mistake.

the new stuff looks very interesting but for the production systems i
generally use "releases" of whatever it may be on the assumption that a
bit more qa goes into those. that's why i'm not even dealing with sphinx
1.10 for now as it's marked as a beta.

all the same, thanks for the info.
