I later ran across a comment to that effect elsewhere
in the build...

Well, is there any near-term need for doing entity resolving
in XConfTool besides this immediate problem with the web.xml
dtd?  If not, then I think just doing non-validating xpatch
is the right solution (at least for now).

This what tips the scales IMO towards ignoring the dtd during this
xpatch (for now).  The goal driving this work for me at the moment
is simplifying the build/configure process (and simplifying the
process of starting and keeping a webapp built on cocoon up to date).

What do you think?
