Hmmm, a segfault while running xsltproc looks like a problem with
your setup (a Gentoo system). Are you able to run xsltproc with
the HTML DocBook stylesheet on a simple document by hand? And the
hardcore way of debugging would be

    sh -x ./configure <whatever you use>

and make the output available.
