LT XML can do this.  When you open a document, you can specify a
doctype structure to use with it.  To do it from the command line,
you need a (trivial) XML document that refers to the desired DTD,
and give that as the value of the -d argument to xmlnorm.

For example, if you want to validate foo.xml against bar.dtd, you need
a file (say bar.xml) that contains <!DOCTYPE bar SYSTEM "bar.dtd">.
Then you do

  xmlnorm -V -d bar.xml foo.xml
