I don't have a documentation build in front of me, but I believe on Debian
testing openjade is set up to just use the principal XML catalog
/etc/xml/catalog which then just simply accesses all the other XML catalogs.
So nothing special has to be done on Debian testing.
BTW, I think --sgml-catalogs is a misnomer now, and it really should be
called --xml-catalogs since we have been using the XML version of DocBook
for a long time. Anyhow, I would attempt to find the principal XML catalog
on your system (the one that mentions all the other catalogs) and point to
that with --sgml-catalogs to see if that solves your problem. If there is
no principal catalog, then you are going to have to find every catalog that
you need and specify them as a colon-separated list to --sgml-catalogs. You
may have to fiddle with --with-xml-declaration as well. For some dated
information on this look at doc/docbook/README.developers. Once you figure
out how to build the documentation on OS X, you should update that file.
