Allright, here's an alternate patch to standalone.xml. It should look the
same as the old standalone version (I built it and it looked okay). It uses
xpointer to reparent the children of the top-level <section>s into <chapter>s
(or <appendix> as the case may be).

It there are objections to this version too, I'll just punt and put the build
docs patches in a ticket in trac, as I'm not overly concerned about the
details of how the issue is resolved. Mainly, I just wanted to know that fop
0.94 was useable for boost, after my earlier patch to update the
setup_boostbook scripts.
