It does actually... xsltproc validates it correctly, and the xml editor
(xmlmind) validates it on startup. Not to mention the documentation is
rebuilt for every build script. This points to a bug in xmlto.
Line 15337 is perfectly valid docbook.. it's just an indexterm clause.
I had a look at it - apart from not supporting the stringparam options
(so you can't build the docs anyway since the page names would be wrong)
it generates incorrect code - try building a pdf... you get a lot of
syntax errors from latex as it's generating unparsable tex files.
Really you'd be better off sticking to the standard build script for this.
