Also you didn't want the SYSTEM keywords in at least the first two

You can achieve the effect you want by having a parameter entity
expand to the whole entity declaration:

<!ENTITY % DocumentBase "../">
<!ENTITY % DtdBase "%DocumentBase;config/">

<!ENTITY % SpecificDocumentTypeDecl
  "<!ENTITY &#37; SpecificDocumentType SYSTEM '%DtdBase;spec_doc_type.dtd'>">
%SpecificDocumentTypeDecl;     <!--  this defines SpecificDocumentType -->
