While I haven't tackled the more involved cross-linking problem yet,
here is a little list of what I had to do in order to make gtk-doc
produce docbook xml and convert that to html (still using jade).

1. What to do in order to make gtkdoc-mkdb produce XML:

- change gtkdoc-mkdb to generate <anchor/> and <colspec/> throughout

- adjust markup in templates and driver to be xml:

  <!doctype becomes <!DOCTYPE
  <!entity becomes <!ENTITY
  "-//Davenport//DTD DocBook V3.0//EN" becomes 
       "-//Norman Walsh//DTD DocBk XML V3.1.7//EN" "docbookx.dtd"
  <anchor> becomes <anchor/>
  <colspec> becomes <colspec/>
  <xref> becomes <xref/>
  all attribute values must be enclosed in quotes
  notation names are case-sensitive, so, eg format="gif" becomes

2. What to do to make gtkdoc-mkhtml cope with Docbook XML:

- change gtk-doc.dcl to be the XML declaration

- adjust SGML_CATALOG_FILES to include the docbook xml catalog,
  typically named CATALOG.db3xml, but make sure that it is not the first
  catalog in SGML_CATALOG_FILES containing an uncommented SGML_DECL
  declaration. Otherwise jade will try to parse the DSSSL stylesheets 
  using the XML declaration, which doesn't work.
