Some packages may fail to build if xmlto is installed in the system, mpd for example fails with this error output:

/usr/bin/xmlto -o doc/protocol --stringparam chunker.output.encoding=utf-8 html doc/protocol.xml
I/O error : Attempt to load network entity
warning: failed to load external entity ""
compilation error: file /tmp/xmlto-xsl.PMd1eU line 4 element import
xsl:import : unable to load

I verified that that chunk.xsl file is accessible so I think it may be a problem in xmlto not being able to download it. Maybe a missing perl dependency?
This task depends upon

This is not a bug in xmlto. Xmlto calls xsltproc with --nonet, so it won't go online to fetch DTDs, XSL and XML files. To fix your case, you need to install docbook-xsl. Some packages rebuild the documentation with xmlto installed on your system. As build chroots don't contain xmlto unless it's in makedepends, I don't consider this a bug.
