  Well as long as you have an ansi compiler this should not be that
hard (this uses ASCII for C strings encoding I hope).

That platform doesn't provide a 'strdup()'-function, which is a pitty but OK
inasmuch as it's not ANSI conform (AFAIK).

  Yup, I used to work on a DecStation which hadn't it either

So, HAVE_STRDUP if  *undefined*  in "config.h", trio support is  *enabled*
in "xmlversion.h" (although i don't know if trio cares about 'strdup()').

  I don't think so.

  669:   xmlStrdupFunc xmlMemStrdup = (xmlStrdupFunc) strdup;
  670: #endif

I'm not sure, but could it be that this is a vioalation of the portability
rules of libxml?

  Yep, it's bad replace it with 

  xmlStrdupFunc xmlMemStrdup = (xmlStrdupFunc) xmlStrdup;

BTW with more recent version of the libraries it's in globals.c
