I think it's worse than that. albatross already build-depends-indep on python-old-doctools, but the latter only provides /usr/lib/python2.5/doc/tools/mkhowto

Okay, a simple fix is to hard-code the path to mkhowto provided by python-old-doctools. doc/Makefile already tries to guess where it is, but on Natty, this guess is incorrect because it comes up with Python 2.7 paths that don't exist.

Because albatross is having package-importer failures, no branch is available. I'll attach a debdiff.
