I built the 7.4 and 8.0 pdfs on postgresql.org.  I was able to do so by
using the sgml tools available in the old debian stable (Woody).  You must
use plain jade instead of openjade (which crashes).  Trying this on debian
unstable took about ten days on an Athlon ~1500, but it did complete.  I
suspect the problem is related to different stylesheet versions, but I
have not actually confirmed this.
