I looked, and somebody has done this.  Not only that, but it was
already installed on my system and I didn't even know it.

It is docbook2texi in the docbook-utils package.
Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work:

fleche. docbook2texi ~/gnu/dejagnu/dejagnu/doc/overview.sgml 
Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.9/docbook-utils.dsl#print
Working on: /home/tromey/gnu/dejagnu/dejagnu/doc/overview.sgml
Unknown processing instruction: Fm: Validation Off at 
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.9/helpers/ line 841, 
<STDIN> line 1.

Removing the <?Fm:...> stuff from overview.sgml gives a different

fleche. docbook2texi ~/gnu/dejagnu/dejagnu/doc/overview.sgml  > dejagnu.texi
Unknown SDATA: [ldquo ] at 
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.9/helpers/ line 840, 
<STDIN> line 3700.

The texi it did generate is pretty ugly, too.  It doesn't reformat
paragraphs and such :-(

Maybe I'll send a report to the maintainers.
