Bug Description

As of this morning nova man pages fail to build (commit c16cd04cf61fc6411fe953e1653385d62ca1ab82).

Getting the following error when building packages on Fedora 16:

looking for now-outdated files... none found
pickling environment... done
checking consistency... done
writing... novamanage.1 {
Exception occurred:
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sphinx/", line 1101, in get_doctree
    f = open(doctree_filename, 'rb')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/root/openstack-nova/nova-2012.1/doc/build/man/.doctrees/man/novamanage.doctree'
The full traceback has been saved in /tmp/sphinx-err-d92MQu.log, if you want to report the issue to the developers.
Please also report this if it was a user error, so that a better error message can be provided next time.

This issue seems to be that the novamanage man page is listed in the usused_docs list.
