A change to latexgen.cpp in doxygen 1.8.9 is incompatible with COMPACT_LATEX=YES in that refman.tex now unconditionally includes the \backmatter command for index generation.

\backmatter is only applicable for latex book class which applies if COMPACT_LATEX is set to NO, otherwise, article class is used. In that case \backmatter is undefined, leading to errors when latex compiles the document.

The solution is simply to make the use of \backmatter conditional on the value of COMPACT_LATEX.
