Ah, yes, thats another thing: libxml needs libz (the Zlib compression
library). Even if you tell configure not to, it still refers to it.
I have seens and received in the history of libxml maybe a dozen
different configure.in patches to detect and link this damn library.
None of them ever worked everywhere. If you have and can test a
configure.in sections which allows to do this and works:
- on linux Red Hat
- on linux SuSE
- on Solaris
- on BSD
- on OSF1
- on HP-UX
- on SGI
Then I will be very glad to receive such a piece of code !
Usually when it finally works everywhere else it ends up breaking
on SuSE, no idea why !
Well, we contributed the last set of zlib patches to configure.in.
I've sent mail to Jakob for his config.status and config.log files. We
currently have no problems on Solaris, OSF1, HP-UX, or SGI. If anyone
has problems *now*, speak up so we can fix them.
