It looks like the transaction documentation has been moved around and
zope.app.apidoc hasn't been updated.  You could remove apidoc from your
project altogether or just the "book" by adding an exclusion like so:

  <include package="zc.configuration" file="meta.zcml"/>
  <exclude package="zope.app.apidoc.bookmodule" file="book.zcml"/>

The above has to be "early" in your configuration.

Preventing failures like this from popping up is one reason to carefully
control the versions you use in a project.
