Fails for me too:

jmayer at alice:~/work/wine/wine/documentation> make everything
db2html -d ./default.dsl -o wine-devel wine-devel.sgml
Filename suffix "dsl" ambiguous: ./default.dsl
make: *** [wine-devel/index.html] Fehler 1

    Karl Eichwalder  <ke at suse.de>
    Mark Galassi  <rosalia at cygnus.com>
Distribution: SuSE Linux 8.1 (i386)


jmayer at alice:~/work/wine/wine/documentation> db2html --help
Usage: db2html [OPTION]... FILE.sgml
Run a DocBook SGML document FILE.sgml through various programs.

If a long option shows an argument as mandatory, then it is mandatory
for the equivalent short option also.  Similarly for optional arguments.

  --help                  display this help and exit
  -v, --version           output version information and exit

  -x                      trace the shell script

Output formats:
  -d, --dvi               output DVI
  -f, --fot               output FOT
  -h, --html              output HTML
  -m, --mif               output MIF
  --pdf                   output PDF
  -p, --ps, --postscript  output PostScript
  -r, --rtf               output RTF
  -t, --tex               output TeX
  -X, --xml               output XML (DocBook)
      --xencoding VAR     set XML output encoding (default: iso-8859-1)
      --xoptions VAR      add XML output options; e.g., "-xempty -xlower"

  --nochunks              don't produce HTML subdocuments; output to stdout

General options:
  -S, --strict            use the SGML declaration coming with the DocBook DTDs
                            (no minimizations are allowed)
  -j, --jade VAR...       set "jade" variables; e.g., "-V %shade-verbatim%"
  -c, --catalog FILE      use FILE as the catalog
  -s, --style FILE        use FILE as driver style
  -V, --validate          validate (sloppy); without "--strict" allow
  -W, --validate-strict   validate (strict); implies "--strict"
  -o, --use-openjade      use OpenJade binaries

Only the last specified output format will be produced.

The script will automatically use FILE.dsl as a driver style if it is found in
the same directory as FILE.sgml.

DocBook XML version 4 input files will be properly processed, too.

Please, report bugs to Karl Eichwalder <keichwa at gmx.net>.

I found out that "pro" means "instead of" (as in proconsul). Now I know
what proactive means.
