[imps] Reducing validator download dependencies [was: local install on Centos 6, BUILD SUCCESSFUL, but not quite ...]

This is a follow-up to the discussion on this list a couple months ago
about problems related to the part of the validator build where it
retrieves some DTDs and other resources from www.w3.org.

I recently made a change to the build that should eliminate those problems.
Instead of having the build make multiple requests for the www.w3.org
files, I just created a zip file containing all the files it needs, and
changed to the build to request that zip file.

Along with eliminating the download problems, this change should also speed
up the initial build time quite a bit.

This change only affects fresh checkouts of the validator sources, not any
instance that you've checked out and built.
