I just tried to compile it. Ouch. See this:

$ make securing-debian-howto.en.pdf
debiandoc2latexpdf -l en -c securing-debian-howto.sgml
debiandoc2latexpdf: ERROR: securing-debian-howto.pdf could not be generated properly
debiandoc2latexpdf: rerun with the -v option to found out why
debiandoc2latexpdf: or check the log file securing-debian-howto.log
make: *** [securing-debian-howto.en.pdf] Error 1
$ tail securing-debian-howto.log
(...)
Error: pdflatex: buffer overflow
$ wc securing-debian-howto.sgml
  10176   57363  409543 securing-debian-howto.sgml

However:
$ make securing-debian-howto.es.pdf
debiandoc2latexpdf -l es securing-debian-howto.es.sgml
$ wc securing-debian-howto.es.sgml   
 697    7718   51009 securing-debian-howto.es.sgml

Which is a previous version (the translation is not uptodate yet)
So it seems we have a problem with PDF generation through LaTeX with long documents
(who is the responsible? debiandoc-sgml? LaTeX?)

I've fixed it (as well as LaTeX)

I'll add a TODO item for the moment (until I get around to write it).
