# Hack: dblatex normalises the name of the input file using
# os.path.realpath, which means that if we're in a linked build tree,
# it won't be able to find ug-book.xml which is in the build tree but
# not in the source tree. Hence, we copy ug-book.xml to the source
# tree. This is a horrible hack, but I can't find a better way to do
