and download either all the JAR files or ALLJARS.ZIP. If you've
downloaded ALLJARS.ZIP, unzip it here. Don't use "Unzip to..."
because that may create a subfolder and make the jars untraceable
for the build program.
NOTE: Tools.jar has been left out of ALLJARS.ZIP because it's
rather big and not everybody needs it. Download it only if
your PDF builds fail with a message about tools.jar not
NOTE: If you have downloaded ALLJARS.ZIP, look at the timestamps
of the JAR files on the server. If some JARs are newer than
ALLJARS.ZIP, download them and install them over the versions
extracted from the ZIP.

To get the external tools needed to build the documentation, go to
and download any ZIP files you find there.
Unzip them right here; they will create their own subdirectories.
Don't use "Unzip to..." because this will often create an extra
directory level; if that happens, the tools won't be found by the
At this moment, the external tool archives are:
docbook-dtd.zip - the DocBook Document Type Definition
docbook-stylesheets.zip - the standard DocBook XSL stylesheets
NOTE: If you still have the "docbook" and "docbookx" subtrees in
manual/src/docs, remove them completely!
