description says it all.
Current stable ebuilds do not recognize that the package has installed the DTD on the users HD when attempting to do XML validation. Instead it attempts to start a plain wget during emerge to fetch the DTD, which fails for users behind a proxy or without internet connection, which results in random packages like HAL to fail to build.
These ebuilds fix the paths issue and we need to stablize them and sweep the old ones away.
