I guess this is caused because you're using the generated Makefile,
which sets LATEX=pdflatex to run. I usually "configure" it similar to
building rockbox itself (i.e., mkdir manual-build && cd manual-build
&& ../tools/configure, then choose manual) and override the LATEX
variable by running "make -e LATEX=latex". Another option that's
working for me is to simply run make (which generates a pdf), then "cd
manual" and running latex (htlatex resp.) on rockbox-build.tex (this I
actually did to find the error in the first place, now I switched to
"make -e LATEX=htlatex" as it is working). HTH.

This exactly was the cause. I've been using that snippet for years, it
gets recommended on a lot of places -- but when searching I haven't
found that explanation. Nice to know, thanks.
