When I add "-Denable_docs=true" to my DPDK 20.11 build commandline I
get a build error:

FAILED: doc/guides/html 
/usr/bin/python3.6 ../buildtools/call-sphinx-build.py /bin/sphinx-build
20.11.0 /home/brian/daos/rpm/dpdk/_topdir/BUILD/dpdk-20.11/doc/guides
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "../buildtools/call-sphinx-build.py", line 22, in <module>
    if StrictVersion(ver) >= StrictVersion('1.7'):

  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/distutils/version.py", line 137, in parse
    raise ValueError("invalid version number '%s'" % vstring)
ValueError: invalid version number 'these.'

Is this a known issue?
