Quickbook create boostbook documents. So you need to install the boostbook
toolchain (a slightly modified docbook). For this follow the manual of
boostbook. If you don't use bjam for compiling it will be a little harder,
but just run bjam -d1 or -d2 and you will have the command line and
temporary file needed.
