After looking at script source code of both /usr/bin/docbook2pdf and /usr/bin/jw directly,
I add an options "-e no-valid" to docbook2pdf.   Command

docbook2pdf -e no-valid myapp-docs.sgml

can generate the PDF :-)  I still don't know how "-e no-valid" will affect the output
PDF, but so far it's good enough for me.

Also, option "-e no-idref" will also generate the PDF too.

The generated pdf document should still be okay. gtkdoc add cross-references to
other libraries. For html, they are resolved, but intermediately they are
invalid. That what jade complains about here.

My problem is ... jade will complain:
jade:I: maximum number of errors (200) reached; change with -E option
make: *** [pdf] Error 8

and no PDF will be generated.
If I can generate the PDF with broken cross-references ... that will be
good enough for me.  Any idea how to do that ?  Thanks


I plan to improve format support in 1.12.
