  Actually after much testing and trial our Windows maintainer found
that javascript is the most common and relibale scripting lanaguage
on the various Windows distributions. See libxml2/win32, but we are getting
out of topic here.

  Case 1: build use configure, then the configure should be run after a CVS
          update, but if using configure, then it's on a platform where
	  xmlwin32config.h is not used (this file exists precisely because
	  the build system can't generate it), it's not #include'd and 
	  the conflict can't break the build.

  Case 2: build does not use configure, it relies on xmlwin32config.h being
          present, it is never regenerated locally (since build does not use
	  configure), and the version obtained from CVs is always without
	  conflict, the build can't be broken.

  Case 3: build use both, this mean you're building within the CVS checkout
          for both kind of architecture, and then yes you may have the problem
	  but this is rather insane to build Win32 within a CVS checkout'ed
	  tree done on Linux/Unix and modified locally due to a build.

If you're on case 3 I strongly suggest to CVS checkout separate trees for
your Win23/MSDev (or other exotic platform) build and for your Linux/Unix
