There are no translations for at_spi yet (in fact, it looks like there
are no strings even marked for translation). Somebody has just copied
and pasted a file and not removed this bit. Don't worry
about it.

The DocBook problems are problems on your system, not with the build.
That may sound harsh, but it is the case and it's really difficult to
diagnose problems of this sort on somebody else's system via email.
The i18n problem is a build problem, but harmless. The 'make check'
problem is discussed elsewhere in this thread (mostly with much head
scratching). So, only 'make check' is a potential real problem here.
