this refers to the user manual documentation in the index.docbook file. 
meinproc translates this into a series of html files.
I checked it again. No error messages here.
There are several possible sources of error. Most probably the DocBook DTD 
definition file on your system is outdated. You may check this in Kate (with 
the Kate XML Validation plugin activated): Load index.docbook and select 
Tools->Validate XML.
If errors remain, could you please update the index.docbook file to the latest 
version from CVS and try again.
If it still refuses to run, check the meinproc version. Mine is of 
2002/12/05. Very old versions may not interpret some XML commands correctly.

There are a number of possible sites you may check for more info:
