Changed that in svn trunk ... should allow documentation to be built before base library is installed ... in case someone else tries using base without installing it.

its because they're building the documentation before installation with this line

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/build/buildd/gnustep-base-1.16.1/Source/obj:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH \
  gs_make -C Documentation messages=yes

so i suppose this could be deemed invalid,
or make -C Documentation
could give a command line option to autogsdoc to tell it where to look for DTDs or something

It shouldn't be doing a network lookup at all ... the local copy of the DTD should be retrieved, so it looks like something is messing up the configure/build so that it's not doing the correct lookup.

um, if you look at the build logs from the link

e.g. http://launchpadlibrarian.net/15846995/buildlog_ubuntu-intrepid-i386.gnustep-base_1.16.1-2ubuntu1_FULLYBUILT.txt.gz

this accounts for most of the 12 hours...
the reason this doesn't happen with other architectures appears to be that during the x86 build it builds the documentation which is platform independent, so the other platforms don't run into this.

it appears the ubuntu build system disallows
a) creating stuff outside of the build directory
b) network connections from the build environment

which is ok IMHO...

the irony in all of this is the url http://www.gnustep.org/gsdoc-1_0_3.xml leads to a 404 not found...

I think Ubuntu's bug tracker is where this bug should stay ... there's nothing to suggest that this is a gnustep bug (it looks like a problem with the ubuntu build system) and it is also very out of date ... 6 months ago, so even if there's some bad interaction between the ubuntu build system and gnustep-base, it's an old release of gnustep-base.
Even if the problem is real on the current gnustep-base release (ie the build is reproducibly slow), this would require ubuntu people to look at why their build environment was so slow (eg compiler issues), though we would of course help if they can provide anything concrete to look at.

In order to compile gnustep-base on i386, Ubuntu buildds need about 12 hours, while other ports only take five minutes.
