Re: Building Bonobo API docs ...

[ Added gtk-doc-list, since that's really the appropriate forum
  for this. ]

Yes, there are problems with the commonly distributed stylesheets
RPM having incorrect catalog entires - this includes the one that was
in Red Hat 6.2/7.0.

The packaging direction for jade/docbook is moving now in a somewhat
different direction with a completely different (FHS-standard) file 
layout and the tools / layout have been majorly revised.
The packages in the current Red Hat beta use the new layout
and tools, and I believe other distributions have also made the
change or will make the change soon.

Since I couldn't depend on a standard install location any more
I decided to go with using the system identifier, even though I was 
aware that some CATALOG files might be screwed up.

I've put a fixed/update version of the old stylesheets RPM at:

These should be installable with the older set of tools. I'm
using this for building the docs on and it
seems to work well.

If someone wants to create an autoconf check for gtk-doc to make
sure that there is a working SGML environment, that would be
great (if hard).

I think packages should be able to assume that if gtk-doc is
present, it works.
