Yes, I've done this with a bit of scripting on HP UX. Frame has a batch
mode in which it automatically does various things, and it supports "book"
files which include other files. I wrote a dozen or so sections, each as
a separate Frame file, and built four or five books from various
combinations of them, all automated by Unix 'make' calling batch-mode
Frame.

Most of it was quite straightforward, though as I recall there were some
tricky bits ensuring that TOC and indexes got regenerated correctly in
all cases.
