gtk-doc fails to compile while complaining about not finding DocBook XML DTD V4.3 :

checking for XML catalog... /usr/local/share/xml/catalog.ports
checking for xmlcatalog... /usr/local/bin/xmlcatalog
checking for DocBook XML DTD V4.3 in XML catalog... not found
configure: error: could not find DocBook XML DTD V4.3 in XML catalog

Please report the problem to gnome@FreeBSD.org [maintainer] and attach the
"/usr/ports/textproc/gtk-doc/work/gtk-doc-1.24/config.log" including the
output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to

/usr/local/sbin/pkg-static info -g -Ea).

Reassign to port maintainers.

Comment 3 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-08 09:59:30 UTC
gtk-doc builds and installs fine. This seems overcome by events.
I close here. If there are still problems, please, re-open.
