I've tried to use SaxonHE9-8-0-14J in place of Xalan.
Tested with Java 9, it generates some errors and the build process 
breaks on some files, but as far as I've seen, files and man 
pages look fine (i.e. no entities in html and expected ISO-8859-1 
characters in the output, and readable man pages)

Errors and breakages need investigation, but moving from the 
(unmaintained) Xalan to the active Saxon HE (Home Edition, Open Source, 
Mozilla Public License version 2.0) could be an option.
