Why do you not put this file in the same directory as the English file?
Since only one file belongs to each translation this flat style should

I did!

You're right, this PDF file cannot be created straightaway. The problem
is the large directory tree in the document which doesn't fit on one
page and causes xmltex to bogusly create hundreds of output pages which
stops which an out of memory error. Just remove one line in it and it

OK, changing the content is not the prefered way. I noticed strings such
as "- -4pc - -4pc" on top of each line and just remove this via sed in
Makefile. The reason for this funny output is a margin-left="1in - -4pc"
attribute in the generated XSL-FO file which cannot be parsed by
passivetex. This is a known bug (#223553) which is open since more than
one year.

Please note that
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/stylesheet/xsl/nwalsh/fo/pagesetup.xsl tries to
avoid to calculate the difference 1in - -4pc by explicitly checking for
passivetex, but this check seems to fail (recently???).

It build's now well using CVS's Makefile.
