docbook xml issues
Out of laziness I'll just paste the relevant IRC lines:
alex__ : what's the deal with those docbook issues?
alex__ : the xml stuff
alex__ : I've seen them last time I've installed DragonFly on this laptop, too
alex__ : building stuff like xfce4 and gdm just fails
alex__ : in gtk-doc and/or zenity
alex__ : unable to parse en_GB/zenity.xml
alex__ : http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.1.2/docbookx.dtd:23: parser
error: Comment not terminated
alex__ : and for gtk-doc:
alex__ : checking for Docbook XML DTD V4.3 in XML catalog... not found \n
configure error: could not find
Docbook XML DTD V4.3 in XML catalog
alex__ : am I the only one seeing those issues?

As can be seen in the config.log, the XML_DEFAULT_CATALOG path (see gtk-
doc/Makefile) seems to be wrong:
$ ./configure --with-xml-catalog=/usr/pkg/etc/xml/catalog --with-libintl-
prefix=/usr/pkg --without-libiconv-prefix --prefix=/usr/pkg --build=i386-pc-
dragonfly --host=i386-pc-dragonfly --
It is /usr/pkg/etc/xml/catalog while it should be /usr/pkg/share/xml/catalog.
Adding a symlink from /usr/pkg/etc/xml/catalog to /usr/pkg/share/xml/catalog
fixes the issues.
Anyone got a clue on why the XML_DEFAULT_CATALOG variable is wrong? I'm
currently running a grep for it in the whole /usr/pkgsrc tree.

/usr/pkg/etc/xml/catalog should be created automatically from /usr/pkg/share/
examples/xmlcatmanager/catalog.etc.xml at package installation.
I've just installed DragonFly-2.8.2 from install CD. I found that xmlcatmgr
package is pre-installed, but default config files does not exist.
If xmlcatmgr package are created manually and installed, those files are
So I suppose that this issue came from OS installation.

System default catalog is /usr/pkg/etc/xml/catalog, users can customize it.
/usr/pkg/share/xml/catalog is maintained by pkgsrc framework, loaded from .../etc/
xml/catalog by default, i.e. used by internally, users should not edit it by
hands and it should not be used directly.

I fixed this locally by adding this line to /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf
Perhaps we should put this in the default mk.conf on the install

I am under the impression that the /etc/ file is supposed to include the
/usr/pkg/etc/ file and then allow user options to be added into it.
Something isn't either installing what it should, where it should, or is
ignoring proper paths which it should have for the data. The softlink
was a poor workaround, not a fix for the real problem. When I tried to
add other pkgsrc things to the GUI installer (for a more user friendly
disto with xfce4) I also ended up with things not fully configured as I
had hoped to have been when installed to the hard disk, but I didn't
take the time to look further into it. I just ended up manually
mounting and copying from the optical disk to the hard drive as a

I think there's something wrong with the package on the OS installation media
that's causing this problem. After reinstalling xmlcatmgr (from pkgsrc HEAD),
everything seems to work fine. Perhaps we can rebuild the package that's
included on the install media?
