I've never had any luck with ports trying to access DTDs over the  
network, but the recent spate of changes to DocBook-related ports  
should fix this by installing the DTD locally and enabling other  
programs to find it.  Make sure that the dependencies of zenity are  
all up to date (in particular, docbook-xml, docbook-xsl, libxml2,  
libxslt, and their dependents scrollkeeper and gnome-doc-utils), then  
clean zenity and try again.  Do let us know if you have any further  

Kind regards,
