Why would XConfToolTask be trying to go onto the network anyway?
What DTD is it trying to get? Oh i see, it is trying to deal with
web.xml which points to a DTD at Sun.

There is an attempt to use XMLCatalog in XConfToolTask. Perhaps we
just need to add some configuration for a local copy. I vaguely
recall investigating this before, but i think that i got frightened
by Sun's conditions in the DTD license (the "not without written
authorisation" thing).
