+On Gentoo GNU/Linux systems, the prerequisite ebuild packages are as follows:

+ - dev-lang/perl
+ - dev-util/cvs
+ - app-arch/gzip
+ - app-arch/bzip2
+ - app-text/docbook-xml-dtd
+ - app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets

+"docbook/olinkdb*xml" files that would automatically discover the path to

+"/usr/share" should do the trick on most GNU/Linux OSs, and will remove
+the need for distro-specific patches that will quickly grow stale due
+to package version number changes.
