#963: Stop downloading DTDs

Comment(by chodgson):

 Ok, I actually figured this out. The part that was worrying me was that
 the catalog seemed to be using a hierarchical structure, and every
 different distribution seemed to put their files in different places and
 use different ways to map from the main catalog (usually at
 /etc/xml/catalog) to the various files in places like /usr/share/sgml/ and
 /usr/share/xml/. The trick is that there is actually a little program,
 "xmlcatalog" which is used by the packages to "install themselves" into
 the catalog. So I seem to have been successful at installing more recent
 RPMS of the mathml and docbook-mathml packages onto the buildbox. At
 least, their sub-catalogs show up in the main catalog. If anyone can
 confirm that we're actually using them properly and not downloading stuff
 that would be great.
