Looks like libtool doesn't like your file system.  I'm not sure this can 
be fixed easily though.

You've probably got a different version of the doctools installed; I think 
the DTD has changed a bit.  Perhaps the configure script could test the 
version of docbook2html to make sure it will work correctly.

	$ docbook2html --version
	DocBook-utils version 0.6.12 (jw version 1.1)

is what I get.

Cool.  Looks like the .spec file will help more than the distro
