Phew .. after some more struggling with docbook I think I finally managed to get it working. Posting here to help other folks googling through usenet archives.
My problem was that I had DOCBOOKSTYLE set to /usr/local/share/sgml - the directory which contained the "catalog" file. However, inspite of this environment variable, configure insisted on setting DOCBOOKSTYLE to /usr/local/share/sgml/docbook31 I finally fixed it by creating a file /usr/local/share/sgml/docbook31/catalog as: CATALOG "../dsssl/catalog" CATALOG "docbook.cat" CATALOG "../docbook-dsssl-1.77/catalog" This works fine thankfully. Now I have another question - and this is probably incredibly stupid. I want to generate the PostgreSQL documentation with some extra add-ons (DDL and DML we have added for streaming data and continuous long-running queries). I would like the add-ons to show in some changed fashion - say perhaps in bright red to show that this is new, not-yet-very-well-tested (:-) functionality specific to our system (TelegraphCQ) and not part of the base PostgreSQL features. How would I go about doing something like this in SGML ? I understand the whole process of SGML documentation as separating content from presentation. So I imagine I should surround our new stuff with some kind of tag, that when used with an HTML (or other) stylesheet generates appropriately changed documentation. I hope I am on the right track ! Could somebody help me please ?
