I use docbook xml for many things here on a FreeBSD 4.8 system (yeah I know it's out of date, but its uptime is 723 days :-). I'm using the OpenPKG portable packaging system's versions of docbook, openjade, tetex along with docbook-toys from SuSE Linux. docbook-toys is a set of scripts, db2dvi, db2html, db2pdf, etc. which provide simple interfaces to openjade and jadetex.
