Subject: revisit: putting together a docbook 5.0 toolchain for linux

  revisiting something i was working on a while back before i got
pulled away to another project, i want to put together a toolchain on
fedora 12 linux for processing docbook 5.0 and generating as many of
HTML/PDF/PS/whatever as possible, while keeping the installed packages
to a minimum.

  to that end (and keeping this non-packagey), what aspects of
toolchain processing can i *omit* that represent optional or legacy
issues that i really don't care about?  for instance:

  * don't care even marginally about SGML
  * don't care about DSSSL
  * don't care about docbook 4.x
  * don't care about DTD if schemas will be adequate

you get the idea.  if i have no need for backward compatibility, how
little can i install on fedora 12 (hopefully extensible to other linux

  so far, i'm pretty sure i want the packages:

  * libxml2 (for xmllint and xmlcatalog)
  * libxslt (for xsltproc)
  * docbook5-schemas
  * docbook5-style-xsl
  * fop

beyond that, i'm still checking dependencies.  anyone else gone thru
this exercise and deduced what needs to be there?  if not, once i
figure it out, i'll document it at my web site.  thanks.
