That depends on the version. With Sphinx 1.4, the CONTENTS page is
filled with a LaTeX 1-depth ToC (e. g. 2 levels).

With Sphinx 1.6, the first time make pdfdocs is called, it doesn't
produce a CONTENTS page. It does if it is called twice.

I suspect that the difference here is that, with Sphinx up to
version 1.5, the Makefile created under Documentation/output/latex
calls xelatex several times:

%.pdf: %.tex
-$(MAKEINDEX) -s '$(basename $<).idx'

With Sphinx 1.6, it calls it only once:

%.pdf: %.tex FORCE_MAKE

That seems another regression on Sphinx 1.6.
