sphinx-build is buggy when multiple processes are using the same
doctree directory in parallel.  See the 3-year-old Sphinx bug
report at: https://github.com/sphinx-doc/sphinx/issues/2946

Instead of avoiding parallel builds or adding some kind of
locking, I'm using the simplest solution: just using a different
doctree cache for each builder.
