I don't have asciidocs installed on my Debian Lenny system.
I've edited tor/debian/rules to add '--disable-asciidocs' to the 'config.status: configure' target.

Attempts to build fail:

config.status: creating contrib/suse/Makefile
config.status: creating contrib/suse/
config.status: creating orconfig.h
config.status: executing depfiles commands
target="doc/"; base="${}"; \

a2x -f manpage "$base".1.txt && \
if [ -e "$base".1 ]; then mv "$base".1 "$base"; \
elif [ -e "$base".8 ]; then mv "$base".8 "$base"; \
else echo >&2 "No output produced by a2px?" && exit 1; fi

/bin/sh: line 1: a2x: command not found
make: * [doc/] Error 127
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2
debuild: fatal error at line 1319:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -d -us -uc failed

I've solved this by simply installing the Debian package 'asciidoc'; I'll debug it later.

and this dependency is mentioned in the build-depends line.

If you manually change the debian/rules file, you'll have to make
sure to also make other changes so that the package can still
