PDF version of the S2 manual

A PDF version of the S2 manual is now available: S2 Manual, 75k.
The output isn’t very clean, but it’s passable.

I wanted to use xmlto, but recent versions of docbook xsl use some constructs not supported by passivetex so I had to run the same commands manually with an intermediate step.

xsltproc --nonet --xinclude -o index.proc\
     /usr/share/sgml/docbook/stylesheet/xsl/nwalsh/fo/docbook.xsl index.xml
cat index.proc | sed -e ‘s/ column-width=“proportional-column-width(.)”//g’ > index2.proc
pdfxmltex index2.proc

It also ran everything through a DTD validator, which found a few typos that I’ve since fixed. I’ll commit those changes to CVS.
