While googling, I found this:

It is basically the recipe to create an epub file from the docbook source. 
Looking at it, it seems to consist of
- one xslt transform using the epub xsl from docbook
- generating a proper zip file with mimetype included

At first sight this doesn't seem to be too difficult to transform in a makefile 
ruleset. We may be able to avoid a ruby dependency in this way.

What do you think ?
