Hi Mathieu --

Publican is failing on your machine because of a dependency issue. 
You've got libfile-copy-recursive-perl 0.36, but Publican requires >=0.38

I just verified the installation instructions for Publican on Debian[1] 
using a fresh installation of Debian 5.0.3 and confirm that the correct 
version of libfile-copy-recursive-perl gets pulled in (0.38-1). I was 
then able to build html and PDF documents, although FOP threw up errors 
during PDF generation and I suspect some further tweaking is needed.

That said, we haven't tested Publican with mml yet, and preliminary, 
informal tests based on your test case have not been encouraging :(

Please feel free to drop by the Publican mailing list[2] and let us know 
what we can do to help you further.
