That means you have the DocBook tools installed but donât have the DocBook XSL stylesheets installed, so it has to fetch them over the Internet. Those Internet servers are heavily overloaded because of all the *other* users with the same system misconfiguration you have.
Solution: install the docbook-xsl package.
Tip: In the future, you can debug problems like this by adding --nonet to the xsltproc command. That prevents it from trying to download XSL files and such from the Internet, so that if you are missing local copies, it fails fast. IMHO that flag should be the default in the stock Makefiles.
