This is normal, the old before-xincludes branch of the BLFS profile does
not have a proper SVN property to get the DTD it needs.

There's no reason to retrieve the entire repository; while we can
certainly fix this problem (most likely by removing the old branch), as
time goes on the repository will always contain branches/tags/etc. that
are dead, broken and/or don't checkout properly. Checking out the entire
repository will never be a "supported" operation :-)
