[Haskell-cafe] ghc ./configure stalls on docbook DTD

Not sure if this is the right place to ask. 

GHC 6.10.3 source dist: ./configure takes about 10 minutes to look for 
DocBook DTD and another 10 to look for DocBook XSL directory.  I was 
writing this e-mail thinking it had completely crashed.  Any reason why 
it's so ridiculously slow? A look at 'top' says the CPU is mostly idle 
during this time, but xmllint is running.
