I might be missing something, but I understand that the sample
document _does_ work (and it works on my system).  What does _not_
work is the actual manual.  I'll try to see what's wrong with the
manual, but unfortunately Lilypond's build system seems very complex
and will take much time for me to just setup.  John, maybe you can
send me the actual offending .texi file (with all files it depends
on), if that is possible, so that I could start from there?  Hopefully
this will speed up things.

AFAIK, the text of bookmarks should be either in PDFDocEncoding (a
superset of Latin-1) or in Unicode.  I'm not sure that either of these
are practical to implement from within TeX, at least not in the
general case of the document encoding being anything besides Latin-1
or Unicode.
