Thanks for the report.  It has something to do with the recent change to
use the XML 4.5 DTD, which after some searching leads us to:

IOW the ISO entities shipped with the XML 4.4/4.5 DTDs are incompatible
with OpenJade.  The fix is to use those shipped with sgml-common, but
I'll have to see what is the best way of doing that.

An alternative, since we already use xmlto, would be to require a newer
version with support for XSL-FO backends to create the PDFs.  On Cygwin,
pending an update from Jari (ping?) we could use dblatex as the default
backend, as it is the sole backend already in the distro.
