ffmpeg srpm build error texi2html

hi all

i've been trying to build my own ffmpeg rpm
and i thought i had it, but i'm getting this error message, and i don't know why it's happening

something about creating an html file

make -C doc all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/ffmpeg-cvs-2005-04-25/doc'
texi2html -monolithic -number ffmpeg-doc.texi
Split loop at /usr/bin/texi2html line 5354, <FH001> line 1193.
make[1]: *** [ffmpeg-doc.html] Error 25
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/ffmpeg-cvs-2005-04-25/doc'
make: *** [documentation] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.77972 (%build)

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.77972 (%build)
this line does appear in my spec file
%{__make} documentation
i commented it out, but it still ran the code above, i removed the line completely, and it still did that code, so i assume it's in the src code somewhere

i can't believe that writing a little html document can stop this program from completing
i had a look at the html document and this is the last line in it
---------->Fran├žois Revol - revol at free dot fr - April 2002<-------

there are 1193 lines in that file, and that line is about 943

i looked in /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.77972
but that doesn't really say much to me (i don't really understand linux that well)

please let me know what else I need to post, the output is prolly a little long
also, i am following the instructions on this page to add some 3gp magic

any help
