Perhaps that has been true elsewhere, but I have just completed two additional entirely independent reinstalls from completely independent positions on the internet and obtained the same outcome:

Making all in man
/Users/brook/pkg-2017Q1/bin/xsltproc -nonet polkit-auth.xml
I/O error : Attempt to load network entity
warning: failed to load external entity "";
cannot parse
gnumake[3]: *** [polkit-auth.1] Error 4

The same was true of many other tries earlier, which led me to start this thread.  I am pretty certain this is not a problem with locally corrupted files.

I am open to other suggestions, but it seems that the patch is needed.  Is this working for others without the patch?
