This attempt to find content/xdocs/book-cocoon-v10.dtd happens when the
XML catalog fails to locate the DTD.

Btw, you can disable all this validation with 'forrest

:|  I have no idea about EBCDIC conversion.  *.xml and *.dtd are unicode,
and shouldn't be converted unless you want to edit them in EBCDIC format
(in which case, edit the <?xml ...?> declarations).  The catalog file
(context/resources/schema/catalog) might have to be converted.  You could
try 'forrest -Dforrest.catalog.verbosity=10' to ensure any errors in
catalog resolution are printed.

The build/dist/shbat/bin/forrest script constructs a CLASSPATH.
Evidently this is somehow corrupt, because ant.jar isn't being found.
Can you hack the forrest script and add an 'echo $CLASSPATH' to see
what's happening?
