Thanks to Daniel Leidert for making docbook2x alive, despite it cannot
be included in etch.

So we will have to rely on docbook-utils in Etch do to docbook to man

But there is a important bug #399947 against docbook-utils for which I
submitted a patch. This bug breaks part of the output in silence.

I have no packager skills to NMU it.

Could someone do an upload ? It would be great to have a fixed
docbook-utils in etch.

I think the release-team cannot refuse a simple patch without new
upstream version (there is no such risk with docbook-utils :-)

Some others patches are also provided :

Thanks :-)

Best regards,
