Just a reminder: You can simplify the book rendering by avoiding the need to 
add blfs.dsl to the dsssl installation dir, with the following changes to the 
Makefile (the same to the script which renders the blfs book on belgarath):

 diff -u -r1.3 Makefile
--- Makefile    13 Apr 2004 16:23:43 -0000  1.3

In summary:

Add the -D option to the jade command pointing to the docbook.dsl's directory 
and change -d to point to the "local" blfs.dsl file.
