Indeed: "should". I have no idea, why it takes so long. (Btw. on
lenny po4a is even a little bit slower than on etch.)

This is on purpose. The build process should not access the net and
really does not need it. The error messages must be ignored. The
newer xsltproc (lenny) does not print this messages anymore, IIRC.
The DTDs are not needed for the build process anyway, but even if
they would be needed, they would be accessed using XML catalogs.
