Re: libxml1 vs. libxml2 (Gnumeric 1.0.2 unable to read XML files)

All Gnumerics < 1.1.x require libxml1.  The configure script is

I upgraded to libxml 1.8.16 this morning, and have nothing in
/usr/local/include/libxml (or /usr/include/libxml for that matter; I
mean by this those directories do not exist).

nicholas piamox7:/tmp/gnumeric-1.0.2$ xml-config --version

After a ./configure with a fresh unpack of gnumeric 1.0.2, the top
level Makefile still includes xml2:

GNUMERIC_LIBS = -rdynamic -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/lib
-lfreetype -lgnomeole2 -lgal -lgnomeprint -lxml -lglade-gnome -lglade
*** -lxml2 *** -lz -lgnomeui -lart_lgpl -lgdk_imlib -lSM -lICE -lgnome
-lgnomesupport -lesd -laudiofile -ldb -lgnomecanvaspixbuf -lgdk_pixbuf
-lgtk -lgdk -lgmodule -lglib -ldl -lXext -lX11 -lm

I've no idea where it gets the idea it needs xml2 from :-(
