Make install broken?

Hello all,

I was building jemalloc from the 4.0.4 tarball and it looks like the 'make install' is broken.
I do:
./configure --prefix=$HOME/jemalloc-bin/
make install

during make install I get this error:

install -m 644 doc/jemalloc.html /ccs/home/bzf/jemalloc-bin/share/doc/jemalloc
install: cannot stat `doc/jemalloc.html': No such file or directory
make: *** [install_doc_html] Error 1

It looks like the normal make won't build documentation, but make install will try and install it anyways.
