I am answering this question.

I found a docbook.dsl in a NetBSD package called dsssl-docbook-modular
(DSSSL stylesheets for the DocBook DTD by Norman Walsh).

But when I use them:

# DBPATH=/usr/pkg/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl/modular jade -t tex -d
$DBPATH/print/docbook.dsl ~/doc/sysadmin-guide-0.6.2/sag.sgml

I received various errors:

jade:/home/reed/doc/sysaadmin-guide-0.6.2/sag.sgml:1:59:W: cannot
generate system identifier for public text "-//Davenport//DTD DocBook V3.0//EN"
jade:/home/reed/doc/sysadmin-guide-0.6.2/sag.sgml:2:0:E: reference to

jade:/usr/pkg/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl/modular/print/docbook.dsl:83:0:E: notatio

ending with:

jade:E: specification document does not have the DSSSL architecture as a
base architecture

Any ideas?
