Compiling the PhD guide
The PhD guide is this manual you are reading currently. It lives in PhD's SVN repository under docs/phd-guide/phd-guide.xml. If you installed PhD from SVN, you already have it. Otherwise, get it:
$ svn checkout http://svn.php.net:/repository/phd/trunk/docs/phd-guide U phd/docs/phd-guide/phd-guide.xml
Now you have everything you need. Just type
$ cd phd/docs/phd-guide/ $ phd -f bigxhtml -d phd-guide.xml
There should be an .html file in the directory now. View it with a browser!
That's all to say. This way you can render your own docbook files, too.
