Hi blfs-support,

I have built an lfs system with no hiccups but this
Doc book package is frustrating me in a very silly

I have tried following many different instructions to
install this properly but it doesnt seem to have
installed properly. I have also tried the instructions
in the INSTALL file of lfs CVS. I just cant understand
what I am doing wrong.

While I try to install some other package, I see the
following error (thanx to google I was able to find
that this was the relevent error among the hundreds of
lines of make message.)
Thanx in advance.
PS:(I had to create a link
root:/usr/src/Gnome/bonobo-activation-1.0.2# make
|grep jade
jade:../bonobo-activation.sgml:1:59:W: cannot generate
system identifier for public text "-//Davenport//DTD
