Description
See #10823 for details about SAGE_SPKG_INSTALL_DOCS. We should build the docs fresh, which would be a nice test of if they had the necessary components to actually do SageTeX stuff.

Replying to jason:
Also, it might be nice to distribute "tkz-graph.sty" and "tkz-berge.sty" with SageTeX, as the example file depends on it, I believe, and other nice features in Sage also depend on it.
That's a good idea, although of course you also need PGF/TikZ. Can we assume that anyone with a reasonable TeX setup has TikZ? Distributing tkz-graph and tkz-berge isn't too useful if lots of people don't even have TikZ.

Another thought: we could just try to build things, and if that doesn't work, just put a small file in the doc directory that points the user to https://bitbucket.org/ddrake/sagetex/downloads and the files there. That doesn't quite solve the problem Jason described at #10823 (being offline) but it does point in the right direction.

I think *lots* of people do have tikz installed, but almost no one has tkz-graph.sty and tkz-berge.sty installed since you have to manually install it. Tikz seems like a pretty standard package on newer tex installs these days.

That sounds like a good way to do things. Just check the error code after trying to build the docs.

I have a spkg that supports SAGE_SPKG_INSTALL_DOCS: http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/drake/code/sage/st/sagetex-2.3.1.spkg. Please review.
I do have a question about what I did in spkg-install
: right now, when it tries to build the documentation and fails, it puts a file in the doc directory explaining the failure. But the installation fails. If someone is building Sage with SAGE_SPKG_INSTALL_DOCS set, the build will fail if the documentation can't be built -- so why put the file in the doc directory saying that it failed?
I have a couple ideas for what to do and would like some feedback:
- if building the docs fails, print the "you can download the pdfs" message to stdout, instead of putting it in a file -- then the user who is trying to build Sage can see how to correct the error.
- if building the docs fails, automatically try to download the docs using wget or curl -- and if that works, don't do the "exit 1" in spkg-install so the build can continue.
Thoughts?

See #11197 for building docs after Sage is built.

I propose this ticket be closed, since SageTeX by default installs documentation into SAGE_ROOT/local/share/doc/sagetex/
.

Setting to invalid/wontfix.

Just confirming that this makes sense.
