XInclude is a layer between XML and DocBook.

You need to either use a parser that supports XInclude, or to use some
tool to pre-process the files into a single document without XInclude.

If you are using OpenJade, an SGML-based toolchain, you will have to do
the pre-process; OpenJade has no XInclude support.  You could use an
XInclude stylesheet with xmllint[1] (which is most likely installed in
your Ubuntu distribution), or, if really wedded to OpenJade, implement
XInclude support in DSSSL... (-:

Or, you could switch to a more modern, XML-based toolchain using one of
the Open Source XSL formatters such as FOP.
