Moving the DTD wont help as log as you don't move or change the catalog file
along with it. I did not check the code, but I think that one is used as an
indirection to find the DTD by the parser. 

PUBLIC "-//GNU Backgammon//DTD Match Equity Tables//EN" "met.dtd"

So all XML documents of public ID Gnu are instructed to use "met.dtd", with
a relative path to the catalog.

There are 2 ways to solve this:

1. Make the installer change the path to the DTD during installation using
macro expansion, e.g.
@MET@ -> c:\program files\gnubg\met\gnubg.dtd

2. Not using a catalog at all, it may add just one extra indirection for no
effect as all it says is "the DTD is in the same directory I am and it is
named met.dtd".
