I believe what's happening here is that the builders don't have access to the internet,
so it's failing to download the DTD.

I do not believe that this is the problem. It looks like xmlto always invokes xsltproc with the --nonet parameter, and xsltproc was always able to load the locally-installed Docbook DTDS, just fine.

A brief look reveals that this looks like a recent breakage between the xml-common and docbook-dtds rpms.

When the docbook-dtds rpm gets installed, it adds all the Docbook DTDs to /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog, in its %post script.

Unfortunately, an update to xml-common was pushed out last week, which reinstalled a completely empty /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog file.
