You were probably looking for beamerugthemeAnnArbor.pdf or similar. This 
will be made by make, too, if the right style file is found.
The Makefile has a relative path which will be wrong for your situation. 
I see here "../themes/theme/beamertheme%.sty". Find the "themes" 
directory that contains theme/beamerthemeAnnArbor.sty and make a symlink 
to it on the level of the "doc" directory (tricky if you copied the 
*contents* of doc to /tmp; easier if you copied the doc directory itself).

You mean 240 pages, right?
