I use the 'default' target in the Makefile located at 
'ubuntu-docs/xubuntu/Makefile' to build the docs while I'm working on 
it. That will put the HTML files in the build/ dir, and for me they look 
reasonable when I look at them in a browser. It's quite likely that 
stuff has to be moved around a bit to build the package, though, and I 
think the stuff in 'ubuntu-docs/xubuntu/debian' is outdated. Now that we 
have (more or less) adopted the doc layout/structure of Ubuntu, we might 
have to look at how they do it in 'ubuntu-docs/debian'.

Does that answer your question?

I'm posting this also to ubuntu-doc - maybe someone who has more 
experience with packaging documentation can comment.
