RedHat and Mandrake provide the stylesheets needed in RPM packages
(docbook-style-xsl for Mandrake, not sure if it's the same in RedHat).

The two files that paths are being changed in assume that the style
sheets are installed in the doc tree per the instructions in the README.

However, the README also says that you can set XSL_DIR to set where they
might be otherwise. The problem is those files hardcode the paths and
don't use that env variable.

The fix is to make the build system have a configure parameter to set
the XSL_DIR and then have .in files for those files that get changed
appropriately.
