The location of the nmap.xsl file is wrong when you try to view a xml
output file.

Per default the second line says:
<?xml-stylesheet href="file:///usr/local/share/nmap/nmap.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>,
but when you download from source, you don't necessaryly put nmap in
that location.

The stylesheet line varies depending on how you configured Nmap; it's
not hard-coded. By default the prefix is /usr/local but you can change
that with the --prefix option to the configure script. Then you can
install Nmap in your home directory or anywhere you want.

Another solution would be to use the --stylesheet or --webxml option.
