I sent you a couple of patches. I completed the patch I sent earlier
with the install/uninstall code for the generated html/pdf. This is
similar to what I did for libX11 which generated images for html we did
not know the filenames.

The solution is clean and even supports $(DESTDIR). The only
"workaround" is the copying of the source xml into the en-US build as
publican does not allow us to specify where the source is located. I am
convinced this solution is legit and complies with automake architecture.

I have run several distcheck and out-of-source build tree scenario. I
found another bug for which I provided the second patch. I needed to fix
it to complete the testing for publican. The patches are on the publican
branch before the top commit. Please update the commit text.
