		Hi out there.

As I follow most of the changes in (B)LFS devel soonish after they
appear, I tried upgrading the docbook-xsl package yesterday.

During the "build-all-our-packages" phase tonight, the build of a few
packages failed with:

############################################################################
unable to load
file:///usr/share/xml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.71.1/highlighting/common.xsl
############################################################################

As far as I could see, all the failures resulted from packages trying to
build their docs via mlto and failing to find above-mentioned stylesheet.

Installing the 1.69.1 release parallel as mentioned in the docbook-xsl
page does not remedy the situation as the stylesheet is searched under
"current", which gets "aliased" (so to speak) to the 1.71.1
release-directories.

Making the rewrite directive "alias" the 1.69.1 as "current" and
installing the 1.71.1 release in parallel fashion works without
problems, although... te 1.71.1 release would then be used only by
things referencing explicitely that one, wouldn't it?
