Creating PDFs from Japanese Docbook XML

Dear .debs,

I have been tinkering a bit with DocBook XML and Website XML for
Japanese documents.  While I have gotten HTML output working with
xsltproc and a minimally customized stylesheet, I am wondering how
to go about creating PDF.

Creating PDF from English documents works fine with xmlto, but I
haven't much of a clue for the Japanese ones.  I am aware of ptex
and jtex but have never used them.  All hints very welcome!

BTW, the customized stylesheet looks like

  <?xml version='1.0' encoding="utf-8"?>
  <xsl:stylesheet version    = "1.0"
                  xmlns:xsl  = "http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";>

    <xsl:include href="dont_really_know_XSL_disclaimer.xsl"/>
    <xsl:import href="your_stylesheet_here"/>
    <!-- docbook seemingly hardcodes ISO-8859-1 :-( -->
    <xsl:output encoding="utf-8"/>

It seems sarge's xsltproc (1.0.18-0.1) has no trouble converting
