Yes, I'm still interested (building the courier suite from CVS still needs
docbook2html and docbook2man). Thanks for picking up this PR!

I have re-tested the port, made a minor tweak and re-uploaded to
The p5-SGMLS port didn't need any updating (feel free to set the MAINTAINER)

However, perhaps someone who understands the SGML/XML catalog system better
than me can help me. There is a conflict when building the docbook-utils port
if "docbook-sk" is installed (e.g. required by scrollkeeper which in turn is
required by libgnome). I had to pkg_delete -f docbook-sk\* for the port to
build. (This is just a build-time problem, and the package seems to work
correctly if used subsequently even if docbook-sk is reinstalled, so I
don't think this warrants a CONFLICTS entry)

If docbook-sk remains installed, the error you get is:

gmake[2]: Entering directory `/v/ports/textproc/docbook-utils/work/docbook-utils-0.6.14/doc/HTML'
SGML_CATALOG_FILES=/usr/local/share/sgml/catalog \
SGML_SEARCH_PATH=../..:../../doc:.. \
        jade -t sgml -i html -d ../../docbook-utils.dsl\#html \
                -V '%use-id-as-filename%' ../../doc/docbook-utils.sgml
jade:/usr/local/share/xml/docbook/4.1.2/ent/iso-amsa.ent:8:19:E: "X21B6" is not a function name
jade:/usr/local/share/xml/docbook/4.1.2/ent/iso-amsa.ent:9:19:E: "X21B7" is not a function name
... lots more of these

but I can't see why these (XML) entity definitions are being included when
building an SGML document.

The file causing the problem *does* exist in the catalog:

$ cd /usr/local/share/sgml
$ cat catalog
-- Created by XML Catalog Manager 2.2 --
CATALOG "catalog.ports"

[brian at billdog sgml]$ cat catalog.ports
-- Created by xmlcatmgr-2.1 --
CATALOG "/usr/local/share/xml/docbook/4.1.2/docbook.cat"    # <<<<< HERE

CATALOG "/usr/local/share/xml/docbook/4.2/docbook.cat"

CATALOG "/usr/local/share/xml/sdocbook/"

CATALOG "/usr/local/share/xml/dtd/xhtml/xhtml-dcl.soc"

CATALOG "iso8879/catalog"

CATALOG "html/catalog"

CATALOG "docbook/4.1/catalog"

CATALOG "docbook/dsssl/modular/catalog"

CATALOG "jade/catalog"

CATALOG "docbook/3.1/catalog"

$ grep iso-amsa /usr/local/share/xml/docbook/4.1.2/docbook.cat
PUBLIC "ISO 8879:1986//ENTITIES Added Math Symbols: Arrow Relations//EN" "ent/iso-amsa.ent"

but I'm at a loss to see why it's being used, especially since the
particular document being built uses the V3.1 DocBook definition:

# grep DOCTYPE work/docbook-utils-0.6.14/doc/docbook-utils.sgml 
<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V3.1//EN" [

Any clues gratefully received.
