I can put a DTD at the top of the included file and it validates in Emacs.

<!DOCTYPE book [
<!ENTITY % prompt.user SYSTEM "../../../../share/xml/freebsd.ent">  %prompt.user;
<!ENTITY % man.csh.1   SYSTEM "../../../../share/xml/man-refs.ent"> %man.csh.1;

But, if I do that, putting the book together by running make on the supplied
Makefile fails.

It does not look like this book is using XInclude.

<books/fdp-primer> % grep -ir xinclude .

returns nothing.

Is there a way, other than creating a DTD in the included file, to satisfy the
validator when it's only validating that included file?

Maybe I'll look into configuring nxml-mode to ignore the missing entity
