That's because you are missing packages in your build environment.

For reference these are the packages I believe are required for building the
Release Notes in Lenny: xsltproc dblatex po4a xmlroff docbook-xsl-doc-html 
docbook-xsl w3m texlive-latex-extra (+ all the related packages & recommends)

Translators should ensure that the language builds fine in their environment
*before* commiting the PO files to the repository, otherwise, you might
break the build and, as a consequence, other languages' updates too.

I understand that having the content online helps out reviews. However, the
fact that the language does not build in www-master prevents also you from
having the content viewable online. That's why you have to ensure that your
translation builds. At the very minimum, it should 'validate' fine when
    make validate LANGUAGES=<your_language>

I will disable any language that fails that step.
