Sure, since disabling the maintainer mode disables the ability to build 
auto-generated files. Therefore don't disable the maintainer mode if 
you're building from a SVN sandbox.

Concerning the the docbook issue: You need to install docbook-xsl, 
docbook-xml and gtk-doc (and probably some other packages, don't 
remember exactly). And you need to setup your environment properly so 
xsltproc is able to find all the required catalogs, this can be quite 
painful depending on the Linux distribution you use.
