I fixed it. See the Subversion log for further info.

The problem seems again the hyperref LaTeX macro package which produces
an error. My workaround seem to work on Etch and Lenny (where it isn't
required).

The generated Spanish PDF will look a little bit different (links are
embedded into a box). I don't know how to fix this. The hyperref option
option to dblatex and via \def\hyperparam{colorlinks} in es/db2latex.sty)!?

Martin, a question: You use
[ -f $(@D)/ifxetex.sty ] || cp ifxetex.sty$(@D)/
to provide the file ifxetex.sty. This copies ifxetex.sty into es/ but
the build directory is in /tmp/!? How is this supposed to work?
I set the TEXINPUTS variables to use the new es/db2latex.sty wrapper.

Current dblatex solution is not so ugly ...
