I think I figured. r9327 reworks the dependency tracking while
also adding lookup of mathml2.dtd on the filesystem.

Now whoever has a slow doc generation please send the output
of your "locate mathml2.dtd" and we'll add it to the list of
scan directories of ./configure.ac

The final report of ./configure will tell you now which one
you're using. It'll be http://something for online (slow) and
/something/else for filesystem (fast). Example:

 -------- Documentation Generation --------
  xsltproc:             /usr/bin/xsltproc
  xsl style sheets:     /usr/share/xml/docbook/stylesheet/nwalsh
  dblatex:              /usr/bin/dblatex
  convert:              /usr/bin/convert
  mathml2.dtd:          /usr/share/xml/schema/w3c/mathml/dtd/mathml2.dtd
