Comment(by mcayland):

 We definitely do not want to be including the DTDs as part of the tarball.

 The way to think about it is that xsltproc checks a local cache for the
 DTD first, and only then if it can't find it does it go and download from
 the origin.

 I don't know what OS the build host is running, but on Debian it looks as
 if it's just a case of "aptitude install docbook-mathml". There will
 definitely be similar packages around for Fedora/CentOS and other OS too.
 Installing the relevant packages on the build host is definitely the right
 fix here.
