often than not overwrites the original libxml header files.

  This is wrong. If your libxml1 headers are stored in /usr/include/libxml
it is an error. It is not the default behaviour.

   libxml1 include goes in $prefix/include/gnome-xml
   libxml2 include goes in $prefix/include/libxml

  this is the rule, I won't accept patches to change this default because
this is gonna turn into a maintenance nightmare.

    sorry, fix your "original libxml" headers location,
