Patches welcome! I tried but didn't really understand what the symlink's 
supposed to do in the first place, so I'm not sure how to fix it either.

mkdir build
cd build
../configure --prefix=$(pwd)

Results in:

make[2]: Entering directory `.../pavucontrol/build'
rm -f README
make -C doc README
make[3]: Entering directory `.../pavucontrol/build/doc'
make[3]: `README' is up to date.
make[3]: Leaving directory `.../pavucontrol/build/doc'
cd .. && ln -s doc/README README
ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘README’: File exists
make[2]: *** [README] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `.../pavucontrol/build'
