(resend, apologise if duplicated)

I installed texlive 2008 from tug and then installed dblatex. When
trying to convert a file from docbook to pdf, it complained,

Document Class: article 2005/09/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class
Style option: `fancybox' v1.3 <2000/09/19> (tvz)
) (/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/makeidx.sty)

! LaTeX Error: File `docbook.sty' not found.

Actually that docbook.sty is located inside another place


How to configure so that it also use sty outside /usr/local/texlive/2008 ?

Thanks in advance.
