passivetex support is AFAIK going to be dropped upstream. So there is no sense
to re-add this buggy [1] piece of software to Debian.

Don't you think, this is a *really* "stupid" problem description? xmlto just calls some
commands. If they fail, there is most likely a problem in your toolchain and not in
xmlto itself. But I cannot check this without a problem description.

Describe your problem and stop flaming!

[1] Almost all other open bug reports against xmlto are caused by passivetex issues.
