Indeed - my xmllint also doesn't depend on readline. I looked on an ubuntu
system and found that there it did, so the original bug report made
more sense...



Thanks for the debugging help. I noticed how Sergei has libraries in other places besides /usr/local. 

I am not familiar -rpath you mentioned earlier. Where can I find information about that?

I am going to try to recompile the dependencies a little more methodically. I'll include a build of libxml2. 
When I install either dbus or readline I find gdm breaks. I'll keep an eye out for locating libraries in 
other places and see how I can use that.


On 'rpath' - you need to carefully read 'man ld', possibly online: .

I do not use 'rpath' explicitly, i.e. I leave it to 'configure' to decide.

Do not install anything into system locations. I am building a lot of stuff as non-root user using my own 

FWIW, see attached autogenerated by AppsFromScratch '' used by my tool to run 'configure' of 
libxml2-2.9.0. You can figure out dependencies and other stuff (e.g. PKG_CONFIG_PATH settings) needed to 
build libxml2-2.9.0.


Also attached '' for glib-2.34.3 - it's trivial to understand which file is related to which 
library from the contents.
