Sorry 'bout that; I didn't include a comment in the reassignment message.

The problem appears to be inside the jade pdf output module.  When
docbook2pdf is run on one of the fontconfig-2.3.1-1 documentation files, it
generates correct output on i386 machine and various fatal crashes on every
other architecture.

For example, on ia64, we get:

docbook2pdf local-fontconfig-user.sgml
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/catalog
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/docbook-utils/docbook-utils.dsl#print
Working on: /build/buildd/fontconfig-2.3.1/doc/local-fontconfig-user.sgml
openjade:/usr/share/sgml/docbook/stylesheet/dsssl/modular/print/dbrfntry.dsl:83:3:E: flow objects at the root must be all of class scroll or all of class page-sequence or simple-page-sequence
/usr/share/docbook-utils/backends/pdf: line 9: 27134 Segmentation fault      $SGML_JADE -t tex -o ${SGML_FILE_NAME}.tex $SGML_ARGUMENTS

buildd reported SIGILL on alpha and mips, SIGTRAP on ppc and hppa, SIGSEGV
on ia64, arm and sparc.


has links to the failed builds for 2.3.1-1.

Branden Robinson suggested that this bug would be best retargted at the 
docbook-utils package.
