Last night I had some spare time, so I docbookafied a chapter in the CMU doc
directory. Admittedly, I didn't spend much time on it and didn't use some of
the more intricate features of docbook, but I thought it would be something
as an example. The content is taken verbatim from the install-compile text
file. A pdf generated output (from the docbook2pdf tool in RH 7.3) can be
viewed here:

The docbook source can be grabbed from here:

Cheers,
