Downloaded the docbook-xsl distribution from their sourceforge site (sorry 
forgot URL right now) and unpacked it.

I ran: xsltproc -o \
	/usr/share/docbook-xsl/fo/docbook.xsl ~/lfs/index.xml

I ended up with a file "" allright, so I tried the next step, 
converting it to a pdf using pdftex:

pdftex --interaction nonstopmode "&pdfxmltex" \ 

And no go here, running out of some kind of buffer:

gerard at lorien~/tmp/lfs-latex$ pdftex --interaction nonstopmode "&pdfxmltex" 
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-0.12h (Web2C 7.2)
Sorry, I can't find the format `pdfxmltex.fmt'; will try `pdftex.fmt'.
(pdftex.cfg)<> (! Unable to read an entire 
Please increase buf_size in texmf.cnf.

And I tried increasing it. The maximum value it will allow is 30000. If I 
enter a higher number, it just uses to 30000. But If I enter less, it does 
mention that lower size in the output, so I definitely am editing the right 
file and the right variable.

Anybody got some more ideas now?
