Pavucontrol build system uses lynx for generation of the README file 
from html. The lynx output is being post-processed for this particular 
problem with sed, see ./doc/Makefile.am

The sed expression there looks for file://localhost/.../doc/README.html, 
while your lynx produces file:///.../doc/README.html. So it needs to be 
updated. I will post a patch in a few minutes.

OTOH I really don't like the fact that the local lynx configuration in 
/etc/lynxrc can affect the output.
