Thanks all for this. I got it working (docbook is being installed as I 
write this and yes, I'm using the new parallel make on a QuadCore and 
things fly indeed [1] ).

As I'm still a FreeBSD newbie I don't dare to write a patch for this 
yet. (I still have to learn what ${EXTRACT_BEFORE_ARGS} means in that 
makefile, for instance).

I'm a little bit overwhelmed with FreeBSD documentation. I've just found 
the "FreeBSD Porter's Handbook". I think I should read that first.

Thanks again,

CPU 1: 77.9% user,  0.0% nice,  9.4% system,  0.0% interrupt, 12.7% idle
CPU 2: 85.0% user,  0.0% nice, 10.5% system,  0.0% interrupt,  4.5% idle
CPU 3: 93.6% user,  0.0% nice,  4.9% system,  0.0% interrupt,  1.5% idle

I just love that!
