First of all, have you tried just using the simplified-docbook plugin? 
It will recognise the DTD and use the available stylesheets. For a lrge 
number of docbook files this produces good results.

You need to define the xhtml serializer used in <map:serialize 
type="xhtml"/> in the components section of the sitemap.

for the elements you need to add to define this component. You can see 
examples in the FORREST_HOME/main/webapp/sitemap.xmap.

(I'll add this to the FAQ, thanks for pointing it out)
