Building the ps/pdf documentation works only with a specific, outdated
version of dblatex (Simon will probably tell you which one). Trying to
build with a different dblatex installed exhibits the error you
encountered above. The error occurs everywhere where Windows-style
pathnames are used; the backslashes end up raw in the tex.

I'm not sure either if a fix should go into dblatex, the user's guide,
or the build system.
