[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#444953: docbook-xml: Requires net access

Package: docbook-xml
Version: 4.5-5
Severity: normal

Hey there,

 it seems like docbook-xml's 'update-xmlcatalog' requires network access
to add the oasis-open.org docbook schemas in postinst, which _really_ is
a no-go area (think of CD installations or network outage during updates
(e.g. network-manager or similar)).

The obnoxious part is that it doesn't seem to know how to interpret a
'network not available' error and stubbornly refuses to give up on
getting the URL.
