Hey all,

I tried to compile gnome-control-center and am running into a
problem. When I try to 'make' gnome control center, it gets quite far
into the process, but ultimately bombs out with this:

Making all in man
make[2]: Entering directory
  GEN      gnome-control-center.1
I/O error : Attempt to load network entity http://docbook.sourceforge
warning: failed to load external entity "http://docbook.sourceforge.n

Now that the configure script successfully completes its run, I was
expecting smoother sailing.

I suppose I could try removing the man pages make dependency from the
makefile target. But this shouldn't even be necessary. Maybe the url
or retrieval method is broken? Any other suggestions?

Looks like your setup doesn't have network access. This shouldn't be a
problem if you're building from tarballs, but you'll need to either
have a network connection, or point the url in the to a
local file. On a Fedora rawhide system:
