asciidoc is required to build pacman (using the PKGBUILD from abs) but it's not in the makedeps array.
Not having asciidoc installed results in the following:
Making all in doc
GEN pacman.8
GEN makepkg.8
GEN makepkg-template.1
/bin/sh: a2x: command not found

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
Currently version 4.1.2-1

Steps to reproduce:
copy the pacman directory from /var/abs/core to somewhere where you can build pacman.
Run `makepkg -s` inside the pacman directory
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  asciidoc isn't a dependency of the package in [core]

This doesn't make sense -- your quoted make output shows makepkg-template, which is only present in pacman-git. We pre-process makefiles so that asciidoc explicitly *isnt* a requirement to build the package in [core].
