To make yours work, edit your sgml catalog:

1. Find the file that defines "%graphic-default-extension%".  Mine is 

2. In my file, that feature was defeated.  I tried to follow Norm Walsh's
but jade didn't like that, so I used:
        (define %graphic-default-extension% "eps")

You could try this patch, YMMV:

Then convert the png files to eps.  I used "convert" from ImageMagick.

$ cd doc/en/graphics/
$ for f in `ls *.png |sed s/.png//` ; do convert $f.png $f.eps; done
$ cd ..

To make the printable files:

$ openjade -d ${DOCBOOK_DSL} -t tex dia-manual.sgml
$ jadetex *.tex |xmessage -file -
$ dvips *.dvi   # for postscript
$ dvipdf *.dvi  # for pdf

Hope that helps.
