just a quick update on the ongoing work to remove the embedded copies of 
Docbook XML DTDs and XSLT from kdelibs/kdoctools, in order to use the system 
provided ones. For more details, plese refer to this thread:

The dependencies for both step 1 and step 2 were in place before the 
dependency freeze, as you probably have noticed. I would like to thanks all 
the people who helped with code and suggestion to support almost all 
Linux-based distributions and other supported OS, thanks!

Last Saturday (4th) I committed the code that removes the internal docbook XML 
DTD and relies on the system one. I think that cmake should recognize the 
changes and regenerate the makefiles; if you find some issues, try to remove 
the kdoctools directory from your kdelibs builddir and execute again cmake.
You can also safely remove the xml-dtd-* directories from 

Of course, please report any problem you may encounter.

I am working now to cleanup the customization made to XSLT files which are not 
in the customization/ directory.
