You are right, I was building in a chroot, not a pbuilder, which happened to
have libxml-sax-expat-perl installed.  The fix would be then simply to add
libxml-sax-expat-perl to the build-dependencies, as you suggested.  

As this fix is not intended for etch, we could take the opportunity to
package the newest upstream version (0.8.7).  At any rate, it is strange
that debian/changelog in CVS contains:

docbook2x (0.8.5-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
  * debian/control: minor cosmetic updates
  * Added 'debian/watch'

but version 0.8.5-1 was never uploaded.  Ardo?

I have been responsible for this package in the past, mainly because the
plplot package build-depended on it.  Now that I orphaned plplot, I lost
interest in maintaining docbook2x.  I hope someone will step forward and
update the package.
