Maybe I am lucky, but I haven't had any problems getting jade up and
running, or sgmls before jade/sp came along.  I have mainly used jade+
dblib.dsl from DocBook in projects that haven't had directly to do
with the DocBook DTD, but rather with my own DTDs.  However, others
that I work with have used jade+DocBook for a long time on a RH4.2
machine without problems.  More recently, I have made rpms out of jade
and the docbook stylesheets and it was pretty straight forward.
