I wrote that overly verbose message for just such an occasion as this! 
     The XConfToolTask (in tools/src/anttasks or used to be) was using a 
parser-specific setting to force it to not resolve dtd references.  The 
line is:

                 new Boolean(false));

So, either the latest version of the XML libs committed recently by 
Antonio (this would be Xerces, no? I can never remember which X is 
which!) has changed this behavior, or something in the latest changes to 
support property expansion have broken it.

The first seems way more likely and may be documented at 
in release notes.  Unfortunately, don't have time to look into it myself.
