OK,  r3459 will make you happy.

$ LC_ALL=C svn pe svn:log --revprop -r 3459
svn: DAV request failed; it's possible that the repository's
pre-revprop-change hook either failed or is non-existent
svn: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged
svn: Error setting property 'log':
svn: properties may only be changed by project owners.

This commit fix 3 issues:

*) Run 'make epub' on a clean copy fail
*) 'make epub' expect 'book/svn-book.epub', but got 'book.epub'
*) Fix no pictures, this is a docbook-xsl bug, we must DO Xinclude
before make epub
