Hello Arthur, hello World,

I have a problem with the libxml2 library. I have installed it, but it 
does not get detected by the configure script.

andy at shannara:~/Programming/Projects/cvsnt$ xml2-config --libs
andy at shannara:~/Programming/Projects/cvsnt$ xml2-config --cflags
andy at shannara:~/Programming/Projects/cvsnt$ xml2-config --version

andy at shannara:~/Programming/Projects/cvsnt$ grep LIBXML_VERSION 
#define LIBXML_VERSION 20632

The configure script says:
checking for xml2-config... /usr/bin/xml2-config
checking for libxml2... yes
checking libxml2 version > 2.6.26... yes

config.log says:
configure:26013: found /usr/bin/xml2-config
configure:26025: result: /usr/bin/xml2-config
configure:26033: checking for libxml2
configure:26055: result: yes
configure:26060: checking libxml2 version > 2.6.26
configure:26094: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   -I/usr/include/libxml2 
conftest.c -lresolv -lresolv  -lxml2 >&5
configure:26097: $? = 0
configure:26103: ./conftest
configure:26106: $? = 0
configure:26121: result: yes

But in config.h I find:
/* defined if libxml is available */
/* #undef HAVE_LIBXML */

Also ldd shows no dependency on libxml2

As a second problem, the configuration within the libxml directory seems 
to be broken, because I cannot
make distclean

Making distclean in libxml
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/andy/Programming/Projects/cvsnt/libxml'
make[1]: *** Keine Regel, um »distclean« zu erstellen.  Schluss.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/andy/Programming/Projects/cvsnt/libxml'
make: *** [distclean-recursive] Fehler 1

Any thoughts?

Best regards
