Not the identifier nor a catalog. But I guess I found, what was cuasing
this: The xsl:stylesheet header defined an XHTML namespace. xsl:output
defined HTML as output method (I oversaw the namespace declaration) and
so I added HTML 4.01 transitional public and system IDs to xsl:output.
After index.html had been built, xsltproc died with an error 11 and the
message in the subject. I now changed this to be consistent and the
build works again. However, the error is not very useful, because there
isn't any directory involved.

The verbose output was about 500MB and not very helpful. The
strace-output also didn't help. However, it seems solved, so I'm happy
