Yup.  This is (as we say in the software business) a known bug in the
process used to compile the DynaText binaries from the DocBook SGML
source.  It will get fixed the next time the books are rebuilt, which
unfortunately may be a little while.

Maybe.  Or maybe it just means that we have to live with a slightly
buggy test bed for the moment.  The team in charge of this is in the
toils of Solaris 2.6 finalization and probably won't be able to deal
with this for the next month or so.
