Bah, this is my fault.  I didn't think to check that the sources for  
DocBook XML V4.1.2 have an XML catalog file included.  It has an  
_SGML_ catalog file, but using that is really not the best way to fix  
it.  Hold tight while I create one (along the lines of that in the  
other docbook-xml-4.* ports) and stick it in as a patchfile;  
hopefully I can upload it in a few hours, but if not, I'll do it  
tomorrow morning.  Alternatively, if anybody else wants to do it and  
beat me to it, feel free :-)

Kind regards,
