You haven't installed all the build dependencies for building the Debian
package. To generate the documentation, you need docbook-utils.

If you're interested, the full list for making sure everything is built is
as follows (| means "or", where generally the first package in an "or"

Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 3.0), docbook-utils | cygnus-stylesheets,
 c2man, flex, bison, xlibs-dev | xlib6g-dev, libxpm4-dev | xpm4g-dev,
 xlibmesa-dev | libgl-dev, libncurses5-dev, libcupsys2-dev | cupsys-dev,
 libjpeg-dev, libfreetype6-dev | xlib6g-dev (<< 4.0), libasound2-dev,
 libarts-dev | libarts1-dev, nas-dev, libsane-dev, libusb-dev
