it might be that the latest pkginstall framework changes broke something in (at 
least) textproc/docbook-xml and textproc/docbook-xsl

These two packages use a INSTALL (and DEINSTALL) script to insert their 
catalogs into ${PREFIX}/share/xml/catalog, by including 
../../textproc/xmlcatmgr/ in their Makefiles

They also set NO_BUILD=YES as they extract an archive during install: time 
directly to the target prefix.

As the INSTALL/DEINSTALL scripts are locally generated at post-build: via the
target generate-install-scripts: in mk/install/, they will not
be generated when NO_BUILD=YES, thus the INSTALL/DEINSTALL scripts are not 
recorded/executed for those two packages, causing the build of other packages 
to fail as they cannot find the catalogs in ${PREFIX}/share/xml/catalog

If my analysis of the error is correct (not that I have the slightest clue how 
this is really supposed to work:-) then a quick fix would be to remove 
NO_BUILD=YES from those two packages and add a dummy do-build: target in their Makefiles

Best regards....
