This is an error I got:

	openjade:postgres.sgml:5:55:W: cannot generate system identifier
	for public text "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V4.2//EN"

You don't have Docbook 4.2 installed or it isn't being found.  That is
attempting to build HEAD, not 7.4.X, which uses docbook 3.2, I think.
What I don't understand is why the official developer build can build

I just checked out REL 7.4.X and got:
	$ gmake postgres.pdf
	LC_ALL=C /usr/bin/perl
	/usr/local/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl/modular/bin/ -f -g -o
	bookindex.sgml -N
	{ \
	  echo "<!entity version \"7.4.1\">"; \
	  echo "<!entity majorversion \"`expr 7.4.1 :
	'\([0-9][0-9]*\.[0-9][0-9]*\)'`\">"; \
	} >version.sgml
	/usr/bin/perl ./ YES
	../../../src/backend/catalog/sql_features.txt > features-supported.sgml
	/usr/bin/perl ./ NO
	../../../src/backend/catalog/sql_features.txt >
	openjade  -D . -c /usr/local/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl/modular/catalog -d
	stylesheet.dsl -t tex -V tex-backend -i output-print -V texpdf-output -o
	postgres.tex-pdf postgres.sgml

and I see the errors you see.  Those look like missing index entries
generated by LaTeX.  Usually you have to run latex 3 times to get all
the index entries fixed, but rerunning the gmake doesn't seem to help.

Basically, I think if you fixed the final error, the build would
complete and you could re-run the gmake a few times more to remove the
