the stuff under the DocBook directory is meant to be built by running
the appropriate "make" command from the top of the kernel source tree,
not from the makefile in that directory.  so, short answer -- i think
you need to get the source tree, that doc rpm simply doesn't have
everything you need to build those man pages.
