Save yourself some agony just make a couple of shell scripts. This is
all I need to do once I had the tools installed.

if test x = x$BOOST_ROOT
     echo BOOST_ROOT not set
     exit 1
#use -r switch on fop for relaxed validation
xsltproc --xinclude --nonet bb2db.xsl safe_numerics.xml \
| fop -r -dpi 300 -xsl db2fo.xsl -xml - -pdf ../safe_numerics.pdf
