Is that path correct? The most common cause of these errors is an invalid
path to the Docbook XSL stylesheets.

Also your xsltproc must be a cygwin version if you really want to build
under cygwin (I also use cygwin as a shell, but use all Win32 (ie msvc)
builds of bjam xsltproc etc, which seems to work well).

HTH, John.

PS also try cleaning out your bin.v2 directory just in case some of those
xml catelog files that bjam creates automatically aren't right.
