Description:
When running db2html script on Arch, it generates output in the current directory. This behaviour is different from db2html provided by other distributions, which creates a directory and puts all output files under the directory. This causes gtk2 to fail to build when docbook-utils is installed because the Makefile can't find the output directory.

This problem was reported by an AUR user on mingw-w64-gtk2 package (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mingw-w64-gtk2/#comment-762651).

Additional info:
* docbook-utils 0.6.14-10

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install docbook-utils.
2. Build gtk2 and see it fails.

make[3]: Entering directory '/build/gtk2/src/gtk/docs/tutorial'
if test -w .; then \
(cd .; \
db2html gtk-tut.sgml; \
test -d html && rm -r html; \
mv gtk-tut html; \
mkdir html/images; \
cp images/*.png html/images); \
fi
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/catalog
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/docbook-utils.dsl#html
Working on: /build/gtk2/src/gtk/docs/tutorial/gtk-tut.sgml
Done.
mv: cannot stat 'gtk-tut': No such file or directory
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘html/images’: No such file or directory
cp: target 'html/images' is not a directory
make[3]: *** [Makefile:661: html] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory '/build/gtk2/src/gtk/docs/tutorial'

On Arch Linux, db2html is a symlink to docbook2html:

If I replace the db2html script by the one provided by Fedora (https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/docbook-utils/blob/b6ea8c1a3808be8a870273608323b4582c657dbd/f/db2html), gtk2 can be successfully built.
