At least some of the build failures seem to be caused by docbook errors. I 
had this problem as well and had to patch my Makefile on Windows to touch 
the files after trying (and failing) to generate them with xsltproc. I'm 
not so sure that it's a good idea to always build them, but I couldn't see 
an easy way to make them only as part of the distribution process. Would 
you mind having a look into that?

Seems like a good idea, but I don't know when I'll have the time to look 
at it further. 

Cheers, Chris.
