Thanks for your report. But the problem has already been reported and
evaluated in #482140. You did not solve the problem by removing docbook-xml.
A script fails and leaves all entities registered. docbook-xml just fails, because 2
entities are registered with a different value than in Etch. There are still entities
registered, which should have been removed and this needs to be fixed too.

A correct workaround atm is to upgrade perl* first. A fix is pending, but I need
to check several other packages for entities, which need to be removed, if the
removal/upgrade of the Etch packages fail.

Regards, Daniel
