The perl script 'sgmlspl' is required by backends\{man,texi} and helpers/docbook2{man,texi}, and it is provided by the package perl-sgmls.

The script /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/backends/man from the package docbook-utils depends on the command sgmlspl from the package perl-sgmls, but the file in perl-sgmls is called!

Creation of man-pages from sgml fails with:
jw -c /usr/share/sgml/docbook-sgml-4.5/catalog -b man gnome-multi-writer.sgml
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/catalog, /usr/share/sgml/docbook-sgml-4.5/catalog
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/docbook-utils.dsl#print
Working on: man/gnome-multi-writer.sgml
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/backends/man: line 11: sgmlspl: command not found

Changing both appearances of 'sgmlspl' to '' in /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/backends/man fixes the problem.

Additional info:
*perl-sgmls 1:1.1-1
*docbook-utils 0.6.14-8
*docbook-sgml 4.5-5

This task depends upon

This is hurting me too (colord and colord-gtk); please fix it.

Should perl-sgmls just provide a symlink called sgmlspl?

It would certainly be the simplest solution.
